Poul, this is not true for JSR-310. A year is 365-366 days long. A day
is a fundamental unit. Thus we know exactly how long each are.

Taking a "second is the most important" viewpoint of the world isn't
very helpful. Most of don't measure the length of a holiday in
seconds, we use days or weeks.

SI seconds are significant, but far less important than days.
