Programmers need to realize that they cannot have both monotonically non-decreasing (or monotonically increasing) *and* "correlates to shared human date-time e.g. UTC".
Can you elaborate? I think you're saying that if I want a clock that correlates to UTC, it must necessarily step backwards sometimes. I don't see why.
