I vote for it. ‘tz’ was already there, but never have been exposed. Same for ‘zlib’ (another topic).

I have this work well underway.




I am very happy to receive community feedback on this matter, so let me know what you think. I do expect we'll be pushing some updates to the mock API in the next week or so.

Looking at moment-timezone the biggest issue is actually the timezone data.


I'm thinking that if there were a standard representation for browsers and node to make this available it would be a good thing.


I'm suggesting this as a step towards getting moment and/or another better date library into js.  Since even with a library the amount of tz data is pretty large and every increasing.


Also, normalizing the zones and current offset and support for dst is a big plus imho.  I'm pretty sure this had been discussed before, but have only been liking here a year or so now.
