That one is certainly a possibility, as are ZZZ (though that's ugly) and 
UNKNOWN (though that I think would actually be a misrepresentation).

The LST suggestion came from an analogy with LMT, which is used for all
(I think) zones in their pre standardised time days (Local Mean Time).
The extension to Local Standard Time just seems appropriate to me.
