Marking decades

Can we start marking decades from ‘0-’9 instead of from ‘0-’1? I mean, officially?

I realize there was no year zero and I understand you don’t say you’ve drunk a pint of ale until the glass is empty, but all the nitpicking in the world can’t stop the general public from marking the end of ‘09 as the end of this decade, and I think we ought to let common usage be common definition.

Then I won’t have to read about it any more.

My personal end of year post is going to happen tomorrow. What if I win the lottery tonight or something?
