I think the problem is that while it makes sense intuitively for
equality-matching of xs:time values to be "cyclic" in the way described, it
does not make sense for ordering to be cyclic; and if "=" is cyclic while ">"
is not, then it becomes difficult to ensure invariants like a=b == a>=b and
a<=b.

Perhaps the mistake was in making xs:time ordered.
