 Hi Daniel.  Hadn't realised it was accessible, sorry.

    Yes. Anyone may use the URL I provided earlier
    ( which is an always-on, 
    production server. That URL exists exactly for the purposes 
    discussed here and is already in use by at least three 
    other production systems.
    At present, the reported time is local to (Pacific Daylight 
    Savings Time Zone) and synchronized every six hours to the 
    "atomic clock" at Argonne National Lab. I will entertain 
    any reasonable request such as moving to GMT or adding or 
    reformatting data. 

<request class="maybeReasonable"/>
  Add xml markup, your own entry, then a GMT value that
could be utilised by XSLT 2.0 for anyone to convert to their own
local time?

current-time() - 19:01:36.404Z  is an example I get...
Though the number of decimal places is arbitrary, hence perhaps 
could be zero. is the fancy specification
for full date and time if you wanted to go that far?
Their example is
1999-05-31T13:20:00-05:00 showing GMT -5 hours.

  <local zone="-8:00">19:01:36.0</local>

Any WG member improve on that?
