This is simply wacko.

I think that if anyone has ever tried to use this notation they would have
noticed this misinterpretation of the specs.

Well, it'd work without surprise for the case of "GMT+-n", which is
undoubtedly the most common case ...

Hmmmm. I hadn't thought of that, but then: with the changes you proposed they would still get what they expect. Even though that notation would not conform to the POSIX docs.

Still seems like a good idea :)
