Hi,
AFAIS this typo has not been mentioned yet:
[[
it provides provides a common baseline
]]

Remove one "provides".

[[
you only have to travel about 17 miles at the equator
]]

Make it "28 kilometers".

I think the audience of W3C documents is world-wide, not just a small 
part of the world that still uses archaic units. Get used to the metric 
system, finally! ;-)

The mileage might additionally be put in parantheses, though.

[[
there would be 24 world-wide time zones, ranging between 12 hours before 
UTC to 12 hours following UTC.
]]

With both endpoints included, it’s 25 zones from -12:00 to +12:00.

My .02 €,
Gunnar
