Another thing to consider is that this will eliminate any useful total

You could define an arbitrary total order, of course, just to allow
BTrees for equality searches. However, I don't think you should define
">" (and other non-equality comparator operators) according to that
total order -- they should be more hidden like "~>~". ">" should not
exist as an operator over this type at all.

I also do not like the idea of having "=" mean "equivalent after
timezone adjustment". If we're making a distinction between "2000-01-01
10:00:00 +03" and "2000-01-01 9:00:00 +02", then "=" should not obscure
that distinction.
