I am so completely a night owl its not funny - my natural time frame is 10-11am wakeup and bed time around 2am if I had the choice, and it takes me nearly a month to adjust when we go onto DST.

If it was a permanent thing, then people would adjust.    Just as some work places and schools start at one hour and others at another hour now - the companies would adjust to what they want.    Full time DST would become the same as no time DST. 

China has a single time zone.    I wonder how much local businesses vary their hours from the East and the West.
