The Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTC-12 claims,
without citing a source, that Baker Island and Howland Island use
zone -12 (and the wording suggests that they may be the only places
to do so). The tz database says "no information" about their time
zone. Any idea where this -12 might have came from?
Both sources agree that the islands are uninhabited (although it seems
that the US Fish and Wildlife Service makes occasional "visits"), so
the question is of little practical importance, but I ask anyway.
