It will only help to do mistakes, how does the host object get to know
what is the host's timezone ? And in any case you generally create HBAC
rules using groups of hosts, what is the UI gonna do ? Crawl all the
hosts in a group and then ? Average add the most common time zone ?

Drop it please :)

In case you want to set an absolute time  that doesn't change with DST ?
