Not quite. Storing the date in the TZ of the server is what legacy TYPO3 
implicitly does. But TYPO3 should store all dates in UTC.

What was discussed for 4.2 was to have a configration switch that either 
enforces the server TZ or UTC for storage. The latter being the default 
for new installations.
