Kendo UI Default Timezone for Display
There only seems to be support for assigning a display timezone to the Scheduler component.  This means that other date/time components/formats are forced to use either the browser's timezone (default) or require various event hacks to allow for manual conversion of values from the browser timezone to the preferred timezone used to display date/time values.

It would be very nice if the following were supported:

1. Ability to set a default timezone across all date/time widgets (not just the scheduler). This could be similar to how cultures are set to localize messages and formats.  If left unset, it would use the browser's timezone.

2. Ability to set a display timezone (different from the default) on all date/time components similar to what's available on the Scheduler.  

Those features should yield the following benefits:
- allow end-users of applications using Kendo to select/store a preferred display timezone, which could be applied to all components.  
- reduce the additional effort and workarounds required to apply a particular timezone consistently across all/some widgets
- If #2 allowed for functions (at least on some components like the Grid), it should make it possible to display date/times based on timezone values from records

Note that time shifting of the JavaScript Date object is not sufficient here. Unlike the scheduler widget, this needs to work for all times of the year, particularly during the spring daylight saving boundary where an hour of local time does not exist in the client browser's timezone but does exist in the selected timezone. Currently the scheduler does not cope with this. https://dojo.telerik.com/oRuYu
