I also think, that that no conversion to UTC would have been better. The
function Date() also doesn't do this and in VBA and Visual Basic 6 CDate
also doesn't convert to UTC.

So far and because of the traps I used this function with a time component
only, which is not converted to UTC. So to me a hard cut would be
acceptable but this is easily said.
