[..] So the stipulation that A and B be at rest wrt each other must be to omit the possibility of relativistic effects.
It wasn't a stipulation. It was just a description of a common way in those days to set up a reference system. And the following claim that "it is essential to have time defined by means of stationary clocks in the stationary system" was basically wrong: nowadays one uses mostly clocks that are moving in the stationary system. But what does that have to do with the topic?
