Given the high quality of the XML-RPC spec, I'd suggest never using it
as the foundation of anything.
I'd also suggest including the timezone for the value, so that it's
unambiguous. This could be done by fiat (stating in the spec that
times are consistently stored in UTC), or by including the timezone in
the stored value.
