There's nothing wrong with investigating calendar reform as such. That's what this subforum is for, after all. I just think social revolution to reduce work-leisure ratio is a separate topic. And for either topic, the relevance of any particular numeric base is going to be tenuous at best, given that neither the Sun-Earth-Moon system, nor human work-ethic psychology, are conveniently artificial. Yes, six-day "stints" are a bit closer to being dozenal than seven-day "weeks". But remember that I was inspired to suggest "stint" as a term for "a stretch of days of work+leisure", because I'd seen it used that way in Greg Egan's Orthogonal
novels. (Let's face it, I shamelessly stole the term from there.
) But those novels are about hexadactyl shape-shifting aliens from a different universe with different physics, who measure everything
strictly in dozens. And for them, a "stint" was a dozen
days. Eleven work days, one day off! Well, they weren't humans, so we wouldn't have to hold to that
kind of work-ethic. But if we really
want to be "dozenal", we'd be talking about dozen-day "stints" (or unqua•days). But then we'd struggle with the fact that our months would only be two-and-a-half "stints" long. Every fifth stint would straddle two months, not particularly elegant. That wasn't an issue for Egan's aliens, because their planet had no moon, so they had no concept of a "month". (No "tides" either. No "ocean" for tides to pull on, for that matter. Nothing even analogous to "water", as far as I could tell!)
