[ntp:questions] Can or should the NTP protocol eventually serve timezone data?

Timezone data is fairly dynamic. It makes sense to have some form of
network service to update timezone data. Does anyone know if there
have been any proposals about a standardized timezone update protocol,
or reasons why there should not be one? Since NTP is well established,
maybe it could be expanded to include timezone data?
