As far as I understood the local timezone would be needed
when making recurring appointments in a timezone where
they use daylight sayings.

E.g. The company boss gives a speech each monday at 9:30,
so she will talk at 8:30UTC in the winter in Germany and at 7:30UTC
in the summer. 

What I miss would be if this could be solved in the different way,
like making two appointments limited by the days when the local timezone
switches the daylight saving. This would break the one appointment one
email design that we have now and could pose other problem as a 
consequence of this.
