It's more than that.  It's that the whole notion of "forward
time" is questionable.  There's no need for a new notion that
means "This location is one hour ahead of where it used to be,
and this is a permanent change."  All one needs to say is
"This location has changed time zones."

Changing time zones is not that unusual.  It happens reasonably
often, and we've dealt with it before.
