Well, my response would've been "takes up too much space." But I didn't make it here in time. Now we have at least one user that I've seen complaining about the clock overflowing onto the buttons at top when using mobile browsers. (You can try this at home by (1) Getting adult supervision and then (2) Resizing your screen.) I hope that problem is limited to a small number of users. As a laptop user, I'm happy with the new feature.
If space is an issue for a lot of users, I would suggest:
YY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS CCST
That's about as short as you can make it without omitting reference to Conquer Club, plus I just made up a new time zone.
Either that or bounding the time in a cell, so that it is not allowed to overlap the "Help" cell but instead extends the width of the page.
