TimeZoneInfo implements ISerializable, but the GetObjectData() method simply throws a NotImplementedException.   

We should be able to serialize an object of this type using a BinaryFormater (works on MS .NET), but because of this, you get an exception if you try.

Closing as it was implemented some time ago
