I found that there were actually TWO erratas in Diario Oficial.  We only have the first one:http://dof.gob.mx/nota_detalle.php?codigo=5127480&fecha=06/01/2010
But also there was a second:http://dof.gob.mx/nota_detalle.php?codigo=5135357&fecha=13/03/2010
The change is in bold in the second document, and clarifies that the entire municipality of Ensenada follows US rules, not just the city of Ensenada.
I'm not sure what this means with regard to San Quintin, but if it's following the letter of the law as currently written then it would currently be following US rules, and later when it officially becomes its own municipality then it would follow Mexican rules (unless they later change this).

Radio station XEQIN of San Quintín has a web presence:
It's a daytimer, the web page says it broadcasts from 5:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Streaming wasn't working for me today here in Maryland until shortly after 9:00 a.m.; I'm now (~9:15) hearing a Spanish-language announcer who has mentioned the date, meaning it should indeed be a live stream. I haven't yet heard a time announcement, and I'm surprised the streaming started at 9:00 my time rather than 8:00 my time.

We'll see what happens in the coming days and weeks--in particular between October 25 and November 1. (If nothing else, we may produce a spike in XEQIN's ratings.)

+1 for America/San_Quintin.   Thanks Greg.
Also - and you guys are going to love this - I looked up the coordinates we have for America/Santa_Isabel in zone.tab, which are +3018-11452, and look what I found:

We've picked "Sierra Santa Isabel" - a mountain range.  :)

Nowhere near the actual town of Santa Isabel either.
