There is a difference in opposing noon start times and opposing UTC
references.  I oppose the latter.

Using UTC is a big source of errors: artificial two-step conversion and
and an ambiguity of a third step which is the daylight savings (UTC does
not respect daylight savings, and UTC is the same as London times some
times).

Time should be talked about in terms of geography (cities, oceans, what
have you) but not in absolute terms like 'Unviersal'.  There is no
Universal time however one might turn it.

UTC is an anchor to go to when one does not have where to go to.  But it 
does not really exist.
