Well, I wish we had support for storing those changing requirements as well. If we had that it would greatly simplify having a timestamp type that stores the original timezone.

BTW, time itself fits in the multi-unit pattern, since months don't have a fixed conversion to days (and technically seconds don't have a fixed conversion to anything thanks to leap seconds).
