I agree! In particular I'd like to highlight one part of Jurriaan's post:

The equation of different quantities of labour-time through economic
exchange is NOT in fact the historical or practical prerequisite for the
abstract treatment of labour-time; all that is required is that the
magnitudes of different labour-efforts in society are known, comparable and
compared, yielding averages indicating the known "normal" labour-time
associated with a task. The real prerequisite is not exchange, but social
labour, i.e. labour-cooperation.
