I'm not, there is (thanks Mark & Jonathan!), and I do.

I agree re the potential of disenfranchising significant chunks of the
community who are in Australia and Asia if we have an EU/American
centric view of these things. For worldwide communities, it's best to
avoid real-time meetings wherever possible.

However, if real-time meetings are considered necessary, then at least
the pain should be spread evenly - one or two meetings in the year
should be held in the EU mid-morning or the Japanese mid-morning so that
the North Americans and Europeans get to experience the 4am meeting at
least once during the year.
