Seems a good overall approach if you did not want to accept
the confusion of the date/TZ the server would add upon readers.
Two additional things would apply:
1) The MUA must not modify the mail archived on disk that
it is reading, the conversion is for display purposes only.
2) I think the MUA might need a library to reference all the past
historical timezone/DST/leap data when converting for meaningful
display in the present.
