Just a hunch...
I think you are right about this based on what I've read in other posts. I believe that the BB puts managing the time/timezone on your handheld in your control as changing these adds a layer of complexity to managing appts/meetings via the calendar function. I guess I'm used to the "old days" when I the plane I was on landed, I turned my "dumb" phone on, and the time updated for me.
