Certainly, we need more educational material on how people should use  
timezones. The particular examples you were editing were created with  
a specific purpose– to illustrate the connection between the  
iCalendar RFC and hCalendar.

Please create new examples to illustrate timezones, rather than  
editing these.

I'm not sure what you mean by "discussion". I know, I didn't talk to  
you before reverting the edits, but the issue has been discussed  
before, but the intent of those examples wasn't made clear on that  
page. For that, I apologize.
