Meta apparently wishes us to give up synchronisation with the Solar day, all for the convenience of poor programmers.

I suggest that for similar reasons, we eliminate the leap day. Later, we can make all months 30 days long. This would still leave an issue with the days of the week, so we should eliminate the week, too.
