Indiana http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/161816 does not have a 
timezone=* yet. Maybe someone who is familiar with JOSM and the 
timezones could do this? Because I do not live in the US, I am reluctant 
to change the data myself. But I guess I could do it if nobody else 
steps up, and if you can provide me with a comprehensive list of states 
(counties, cities) and timezones.

You see, I would want this data to be present in OSM, to benefit also 
other users than those using mkgmap-generated maps. If we have the data 
in OSM and if mkgmap starts to interpret it, then you would get the 
timezone borders "out of the box". I do not think that timezone borders 
would add any significant clutter to the map, so IMO they should be 
included in the default style.
