I am worried that a significant number of implementations may keel over if
handed negative offsets.

I'm not quite sure what the motivation for such a potentially destabilizing
change its. If the only purpose is to call one of the two times "Irish
Standard Time" and the other "GMT", then that seems a simple matter of
changing the naming, not other changes to the data.
