Not possible.

The format of time stamps would have to change to include time zone
information, although I guess the change could be upwards compatible by
assuming the local time zone if a designator is not present.  The regex
specifications for time stamps would need to be updated and potentially
all functions using these would have to change as well.

And I'm sure there would be second order implications...

I think it would be doable.  The question is whether it is worth
it.  When I was in Australia for a year recently, flying back and forth
frequently, I would have loved to have had this feature.  However, I
managed without it by being careful about how I put the information into
my org files.
