==> Good point.
I have no special difficulty to work with the UTC (standard, nowhere),
but my peronnal observation is that even the people working on space
program prefere use local time references for meetings or real life.
What about a sample of 3 or 4 real places (plus UTC if you wish) ?
Until now, I reference 3 well populated geographical areas:
Central European (300 000 people, more than UTC zone)
adding sometimes Singapore or Japan for Asia
