I'm actually doing this right now. There's a lot of RSS and Atom that
uses incorrect date/time.

For example, the Six Apart update stream uses ISO 8601 atom:published
without a timezone.

I was able to figure out that they were using Z but only after inspection.

Won't someone PLEASE think of the robots! :)
