By the same reasoning, when the system is booting up it is wrong to set 
the time from the BIOS coz the BIOS clock may be way off.

I would suggest modifying the setclock script to write to the BIOS 
during shutdown but not link it from rc6.d and rc0.d. Then put a 
paragraph in the book about making the symlinks and that it is recommended.
