Maybe we should accept "Swatch Internet Time"
As they say:
Internet Time represents a completely new global concept of time:
No Time Zones.
No Geographical Borders.
Swatch has divided the virtual and real day into 1000 "beats".
One Swatch beat is the equivalent of 1 minute 26.4 seconds. That
means that 12 noon in the old time system is the equivalent of @500
Then users can use this cool Flash map to know what time to enter:

W3C position on this.
There are 'official' IETF and ISO standards -- ISO 8601 is the one that
gives strings like:
which is the one discussed in the W3C note and the one RSS is using. I, on
the other hand, am partial to the IETF standard RFC 1123, which lets you
have strings like:
