You are of course right about this. And I must admit that the
matter, for now at least, is not important enough for me to
go further than just *saying* something like "timezones would
be nice to have"... I'm not volunteering to spend significant
time on developing a solution that is implementable and
compatible with the existing realities of the IT world, or even
on searching whether such a solution might exist already in
some already-existing spreadsheet software.
