I agree--the offset is more elegant, but just using the UTC date is likely more practical. I think the ship has long since sailed on making MetaWeblog being elegant, so I'd personally lean toward practical :)

If we do the UTC date then no parsing at all will be required, given a reasonable XML-RPC library. That seems like a real benefit to me.
