UTC is no better than DMT (Dragonlance Mean Time).  In fact, I think I will
have easier time explaining DMT to a ten year old than explaining UTC.   If
your team can agree on a natural language, they can agree on a timescale.
It does not matter what it is.  If uniformity was a universal virtue, we
would all be speaking Esperanto by now.
