For me, it's more important for the calendar date to accurately reflect the 
season than to precisely record historical dates.  So I would want the 
proleptic Gregorian calendar for that.  Also, I agree with others that year 0 
should be present for continuity (but again, I am biased because I don't care 
so much about matching historical dates).  Conforming to ISO 8601 would seem 
to be a good argument for keeping year 0.
