If we lived now 2008/2009 I could have a possibility to work K5P in the
daylight at about 2PM. (Right this year no possibility).
Would that QSO be rejected for my DXCC count?

I am a 160 card checker, and I damn well DO check the times!  I'm sorry to
report that I have found cases where "impossible" QSOs were claimed, and
reported them to the mother ship in Newington.  I would sincerely hope that
my colleagues would do the same.>>>

But isn't it legal to operate anywhere in the lower continental USA to make
a DXCC contact in the lower continental USA?

As far as I know, they made that legal many years ago, and the contact
simply has to be made from the USA lower 48 no matter where.

Where were all the complainers when they did that? As far as I'm concerned,
that was the end of DXCC meaning very much. I wrote and complained. Now it
is what it is.
