FYI, I like the change.  As I recall it, the current wording was just to avoid saying "ahead of UTC" or "behind UTC" (which was the original wording).  Technically pure or not, I never saw anyone get truly confused by "East of UTC" or "West of UTC", but I fully that what people really want to know is what to do with the thing (add or subtract it).
