Except that it would seem quite likely that neighbouring non-EU 
countries will align themselves with any changes made...

It also occurs to me that much of our discussion, and much of the 
recommendation, is assuming that many European countries would change to 
an offset that equates to their current summer time (i.e. permanent 
summertime by any other name), when it is equally possible that they 
would choose to stay year-round on their current winter time.
