Subject: UTC times: a detail we didn't discuss
Before today’s meeting Michael provided a piece of feedback that I neglected to mention: he proposed that date/time-valued properties in property bags also be expressed in UTC. I agreed, although on second thought it might not always be possible. So I added the highlighted text to what we discussed this morning:
The time component of every date/time-valued property SHALL be expressed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
NOTE 1: The name of every date/time-valued property ends in “Utc” to emphasize thos requirement.
The time components of date/time-valued properties in property bags (§3.7) SHOULD also be expressed in UTC.
NOTE 2: This might not always be possible if the property comes from a source that does not provide time zone information.
Please let me know if you have any objection to that.
