yes, very good answer!
but a little "but" rests:
T/O are made to let people move not too slow. in a normal game with normal opponents there should never be a T/O. so give the guy with no internet on weekend enough time and it will be fair.
for the timezone argument I can't fiand anything :'(
but after all you're right...
