Comment (by Denis-de-Bernardy):

 The short short version of the above breaks down to:

 - post_date_gmt should contain the UTC time without any daylight savings
 or other adjustments. The raw stuff.
 - a) If we guarantee that (not sure we currently are), then it's fine to
 order posts using it.
 - b) If not, we should enforce it, then we should enforce it, and can then
 safely order posts using it.

 Unit tests tests are needed in either case.
