"Our office hours are 9-5" would become "our office hours are 9-5, 10-6, 11-7 ..."

I don't think so. You'd say "office hours are 9-7." The fact that some of your offices might be closed during that window is (presumably) irrelevant.

I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

What? How is it irrelevant to tell employees they need to be at work from 10-6 instead of 9-7?

Umm... It would be irrelevant, because those employees always go to work at N .. N+8, and they go home and eat dinner at N+9, and go to bed and N+12, and so on. The actual numbers don't matter!

Are you suggesting that a national company tells its employees their work hours using a mathematical formula?

"If you live Ontario, N is 5.If you live in Manitoba, N is 6. If you live in Saskatchewan, N is 6. If you live in BC, N is 7. Office hours are 9+N to 17+N."

How is that better than time zones?

"Office hours are 9am to 5pm"

And that's just one example.
