PropertyStates keep dates internally as long timestamps, so we don't
need any value conversions if we just do:

    return PropertyStates.createProperty(name,
System.currentTimeMillis(), DATE);

Value conversions are needed when the value is read as a date by a JCR
client. Only at that point does the time zone stuff kick in.
