Well, "a naive time using a timezone" is a misnomer.  
 
Basically, the opposite of what you did: converting that naive
time _from_ London time (you should be able to convert it from any
timezone, after all, since it's naive) _to_ some other timezone.

And you can:

>>> New_York = ZoneInfo.fromname('America/New_York')
>>> print(t0.replace(tzinfo=New_York).astimezone(timezone.utc))
2016-11-06 05:30:00+00:00
>>> print(t1.replace(tzinfo=New_York).astimezone(timezone.utc))
2016-11-06 06:30:00+00:00
>>> print(t0.replace(tzinfo=London).astimezone(timezone.utc))
2016-11-06 01:30:00+00:00
>>> print(t1.replace(tzinfo=London).astimezone(timezone.utc))
2016-11-06 01:30:00+00:00

Note that the result of conversion to UTC is different for t0 and t1 when they are interpreted as NY times, but the same when they are interpreted as London time.

I think this all has been explained in the PEP, but discussions like this may be helpful for writing the documentation.
