Yikes. Can that be actually put into English?

I've read thru it, and the only thing I can come away is that 'if UTC, 
then offset is required, and it can be anything from -23 to +23, 
including your example 0 meaning no offset from UTC.

As it now reads, theres a ton of ambiguity that needs further 
clarification.
