Thank you for the detailed description!  Now I convinced that the
time value must be held in UTC always.

Then, if I understand correctly, the time object must hold a UTC time
value alongside timezone information.

struct Time
    ulong utc;
    Timezone tz;

... and timezone conversions are done by just replacing the tz member.
