It seems to me that it will be confusing only to non-US people, honestly,
which are the ones benefiting from this change. When DST changes are
applied, and because they are not applied at the same across the globe,
people will see their SWAT times change for no apparent reason. At the same
time, there is plenty of hours of difference between the last deploy window
mentioned in your email and the first SF-centric deployment window to
account for the periods when DST settings vary.

I believe that pinning them to UTC would actually eliminate the confusion.

My 2 cents,
