    The choice of the term "local time differential" was unfortunate because
    commonly, a differential is not a difference. The terminology was 
    •  in [ISO 8601:1988] to "time difference"
    •  in [ISO 8601-1:2019] to "time shift"
    but the definition as time shift = local time - UTC remained the same.
