I think we misunderstand eachother. I am in no doubt that people travel all the time,
and changing timezone is an issue here. I was not addressing that, but addressing that
"locales also are not strictly defined by country borders which means the timezone spans are even higher".
I doubt that this is a big problem, but would like to hear where there are problems with this.
Travelling - I think this is a well known issue, and already solved. At least I travel a lot,
and I am happy that in my kde interface I can just click on the time displayed
in my bottom panel, and change the time displayed to the one that I need.
Where do you foresee problems with the timezone category on this?
My take is that it does not change anything here.
