I believe we should add a illustrative example to the KEP,
otherwise people will not understand the rationale fast enough.

Reading the KEP 2 in the current version I also believe
it could be improved in the rampup of the problem. As explained before
this used to work within different timezones, e.g. throughout Europe.
(The tested version number of KDE Kontact should also be mentioned, because it 
might have worked better in older versions. :/ ).
