I am on the joint ISO/ANSI C++ committee.  It's a safe bet that the 
C++ committee will be considering time and time zone representations 
for future technical reports, amendments, or revisions to the C++ 

To be considered for addition to existing standards, a proposal 
like this must be implemented and demonstrated to be useful in 
real programs.  Posting a library interface with arguments in its
favor is not sufficient.  Instead, rewrite demonstrably useful 
programs to use your interface, and show improvements in clarity, 
correctness, safety, and/or efficiency.
