That's true about the time zone, but I'd better consider IRC as  
another tool.  IRC is in fact a complementary tool. More precisely we  
got :

Mail : asynchroous, not localized
IRC : synchronous, not localized

Makes obvious both are different tools, and IRC  is an important one  

e.g.Education Project used to propose ClassRooms (providing the logs  
to the -for whatever reason- excluded people), and this wouldn"t  
never be possible using mail.

But that's not all, IRC allows to make meetings, or even debug, and  
work on the code .. and so on :)
