Whether it makes sense or not, every government would have to legislate it, every door or website that posts business hours would have to be changed, and people would have to get accustomed to talking about having meals at times that previously seemed beyond bizarre. Even places that switched to metric or Celsius also quoted Imperial or Fahrenheit for quite a while thereafter. Canada converted when I was in my teens, so I still often do a mental conversion to the previous system, and you still find lbs/ozs in grocery stores (although in smaller fonts, probably because that's mandatory).
