They don't *need* to. As I said above, the timezone is selected
once per event, by the creator of the event. After that, it's
determined, and the picking doesn't happen again. It doesn't
*matter* if two separate users make two separate choices for two
separate events in the same place. Each event is self-describing
and self-contained; there is no ambiguity.
