Comment (by Rarst):

 Refreshing what's our options are at this time.

 Is the suggested endpoint dead? http://api.wordpress.org/core/ip-to-
 zoneinfo/1.0/?callback=abcd `({"errorcode":5,"errormessage":"GeoNames API
 could not be contacted"})`

 Looked at `Intl.DateTimeFormat().resolvedOptions().timeZone` and browser
 support looks good by now (except IE), but there are reports that returned
 value is incorrect/inconsistent between browsers. Also the value might not
 at all be consistent with ''PHP'' time zone, which we need. I suppose we
 could do a very low hanging fruit implementation when suggestion is made
 if JS time zone matches exactly one of PHP time zones. Anything more
 comprehensive would require us to maintain complex multi-browsing mapping
 from possible JS values to PHP ones.
