Can we promote the term "Daylight Shifting Time"?

1) Nothing's being "saved", it's just moved from the morning to the evening.

2) It can refer either to shifting it from the morning to the evening, as many countries do in the spring, or to shifting it from the evening to the morning, as Ireland does in the autumn.

3) You don't have to worry about "Saving" vs. "Savings".

4) It's still "DST", so you don't have to change, for example, "tm_isdst".
