Like, DUH! You idea would require that everyone adjust their idea of
what morning, evening and even the start of the new day is based on
which time zone they are in. If I lived in Japan I would not like the
idea of changing the date in the middle of the work day. COB takes on
an entirely new meaning! Is that COB Tuesday midnight? Or COB Tuesday 4
AM when I go home from work?
