One of *my* goals is that the illusion of git back to the beginning of
time should be as consistent as possible.

Exactly. I've already written about minimizing cognitive friction.
Here's why you want to get timezones right: there are going to be times
when the order of commits is significant information for a developer's
understanding of what happened. But without a timezone you only know
the actual time of a commit to 24-hour resoltion.
There is no way we'll get this perfect. But there is more wrong and
less wrong, and reposurgeon tries hard to be less wrong.
