The NTP model is a good one, and is logically related to TZ.
More generally, there's the Internet Systems Consortium, which
hosts the NTP Public Services Project; see

start a TZ Public Services Project that would run on similar
grounds. There is a good connection between ISC's other projects
(notably DHCP) and the TZ database.
I can explore the possibilities there, if this seems
like a good idea to others.
