For example, my coworker in Russia may schedule a meeting, which will 
occur in Moscow during my visit over there next week, but I have asked 
the calendaring software to report stuff to me in the en_US locale. 
Hence I get a message, in English, with a Russian time zone.

If the meeting were in San Jose, CA, then I would expect the time zone 
to be that of San Jose, and my Russian coworker would expect the Russian 
translation of (the short or the long form of) PDT.
