  | "LST" seems too like the other "meaningful" identifiers that people may try
  | to continue to infer meaning from it.

And ...

A couple of other suggestions I have been sent off list:

	LCT (Local Clock Time) which has the advantages of LST (most of
		the advantages I like in that one, but without the
		name clash - which personally I see as a deficit of LCT!)
	NIL or nil as an alternative for NONE or none while remaining
		3 characters long (which is a minor advantage, but we
		already have zones with longer abbreviations, so ...)

These are thrown into the pot for consideration.  There is no current
urgency to come to a conclusion on this that I'm aware of, so we can
treat it as a back-burner topic.  But please everyone, keep in mind that
debating names is easy, everyone can have an opinion, as there's usually
no right answer (sometimes some wrong answers, but not often one
obviously right answer).
