  I'd say this is an incorrect assumption.  Perfect case, Jabber.org.  I am no 
where NEAR the same timezone.  Also, companies like AOL, PSINet, (insert random 
larger ISP here) would not have the server in the same timezone..

  I also think we're missing something here.  The ONLY timezone that is up for 
debate is the CLIENT that's sending the messages timezone.  All other timezone 
parameters should be for the local server doing the timestamp.
