Of course it is sharable. If I tell you that I replied to your email 33 hours 
after you sent it, it's completely irrelevant that you're in British Summer 
Time and I'm in Pacific Daylight Time. The span of time between those time 
points is the thing that matters, the same way that the milliseconds since 
epoch do.
