[Bug 11616] UTC began at 1961-01-01T00:00Z, and there is no such thing as proleptic UTC. Therefore the Nero example is ill-defined.

That there's no such thing as proleptic UTC is tautological  "proleptic" means
we're extrapolating it to a time before it existed.

But I guess I can change it to refer to UT1 instead of proleptic UTC. If I do
that I'll try to make sure it's still obvious what it means.
