    Everything you describe above is consistent with coordinate time (which is

Ooh, please sir, I know what it is!

I suggested the CMB might define Edgar's absolute rest frame :-)

Hey, I suggested it first. :-)

But the thing about the CMB rest frame is that it's position dependent due to expansion of the universe. Just look at Ned Wright's diagrams. So it's not a single inertial frame, it's an epoch at which the proper time to the big-bang is the same for all the stuff that's always been locally stationary.
