Time zone "UT"

I used to think that LiveJournal was broken for sending out mails with a time zone of "UT" in the Date: header.

I thought it should be "UTC", but looking through RFC 2822 just now, I see that "UT" and "GMT" are listed but "UTC" is not. (Both are listed under "obs-zone", though, and the recommended way to specify the time zone appears to be numeric: +0100, -0900, etc.)

So it's a bug in Gmail that it thinks LiveJournal's comment notification emails are dated in PST or whatever it assumes (it won't tell me the message was dated "1 hour ago" until it's closer to eight or ten hours old, I forget how much exactly).
