Ha!  But seriously, even as a publicity stunt that might shed useful 
light on the persistent problem.

Another idea would be to translate Matt Johnson's excellent summary 
and analysis 
into the official languages of all the governments on earth and place 
them at http://www.iana.org/time-zones/changes.

With Matt's permission of course.

A one page summary targeted to politicians, sensitive to their 
incredibly short attention span, might be useful as well.
