I don't disagree that a base-12 system could be a good thing. But put it to practice and see what happens. Start simple. Write out the diatonic keys. In other words, start testing the idea of: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 T Y. You have to start somewhere. Post back with some work and get some feedback. What problems get resolved? What new problems come up? Is the tradeoff worth the change?

My intitial thought: The diatonic sequences of an absolute pitch base-12 system have no immediate common sequence which ties them all together and makes them easier to think about, as a result of throwing out sharp and flat symbols.
