All non-numeric zone names are deprecated as of RFC 2822. I recommend
changing that function at some point to use -0000 for the timezone
instead. Otherwise, someday that will trip up someone who's using it for
e-mail.

Either is fine under RFC 822 as modified by RFC 1123 (but UTC is not; UTC
is not a valid RFC 822 zone name).
