As you surmised, the two times a Touch can update the time are either when you sync data from iTunes, or use the Touch wirelessly. With the first option, the time is updated automatically; with the second, you can update it when you're online - and you already know how to change time zones pretty well, by now.
The iPhone can set the time zone automatically, since it's always has a network connection. It does seem like a rudimentary app to devise, and would prove useful. However, 10.6 is said to address this issue for some:

Do you happen to know any app developers who would be interested in taking on this task?
In terms of functionality, I was thinking that the app could have two modes of operation. One uses notifications to check your current TZ when it first detects a wireless network and compares it with your current TZ, popping up a dialog if they are different and asking if you want to change it. The second would be a manual process where you run the app explicitly before it does the check. In both cases it could also sync the clock with an NTP server - why not if it's available?
