I think that is incorrect, as it is an either-or. The timezone is:

     *   omitted, therefore local timezone
     *   Z, therefore UTC
     *   +/-HH:MM, therefore an offset from UTC

The W3C page on date/time formats (<http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE- 
datetime>)  says:
> TZD = time zone designator (Z or +hh:mm or -hh:mm)

Also see <http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-time.html#zone> for more  
notes on the ISO standard.
