An essential feature of the honest approach you are proposing is that
each sovereign nation will get to decide for itself whether or not it
wants to switch over. Undoubtedly at least some nations will choose
to stick with MST as the basis of their legal time.
But that's exactly what the bastards apparently have their biggest
problem with: their goal is to surreptitiously make *all* countries
change the basis of their legal time without even knowing it!
