I read somewhere that Gavin Schultz was on an SMPTE working group looking at

Maybe some of the Ascent guys can elucidate?

Now that we have entered the twenty first century, are there any plans afoot
to bring time code along with us? I think it would be great if users could
select 24 hour code or flip a switch and have 100 hour code. All those
dailies that keep going around the clock and leading to headaches figuring
out which 4 hour reel has what scenes could go by the boards. I'd say keep
the legacy code for those who want time of day, but for big jobs like
feature films 100 hour code could be pretty useful. 
I know it involves a bit of retooling, but it seems like a good idea to me.
