Comment (by rmccue):

 +1 on this ticket in general.

 Looking at it, as nacin noted, `gmt_offset` allows anything. One huge
 issue is that DateTimeZone does '''not''' handle arbitrary timezone
 offsets; we've [https://github.com/WP-API/WP-API/issues/371 run into
 this], and [https://github.com/WP-API/WP-API/pull/431 had to change our
 handling] because of it.

 The latter patch seems to handle this fine.

 One thing I see missing right now is checking for "Z" in the time string;
 Z indicates Zulu time (UTC) in ISO8601/RFC3339. Note that ISO8601 can also
 take timezone offsets in the form of "+hhmm" or "+hh" (ditto -). IMO,
 detecting this is more trouble than it's worth, and it might be worth
 reconsidering that approach.

 I'll check this out. :)
