Why would there be? The Azimuthal Equidistant Projection is perfect for displaying approximate timezones. I guess some people might have a problem with it being centered on the South Pole, but they are just showing a Northern Hemisphere bias.
On the countrary, being centered in the South Pole is a Nothern Hemisphere bias. It shows Europe bigger than South America and as big as Africa... Intersting insight about projections in The West Wing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVX-PrBRtTY
It also shows them ridiculously distorted in a manner unusual to those familiar with the typical cylindrical and pseudo-cylindrical projections. Size isn't everything. What is easier to pick out? Uruguay or Germany?
