TI without leaps turns day into night, and my point is that the
agrarian masses of the world and their legislatures may not be
beholden to the ITU messing around with the way their great
grandchildren will tend their cows.

Unfortunately, we don't really have any proposals. We have a lot of
internally generated hypothetical scenarios based on vague hints from
the SRG devoid of technical or social details and rationale.

At this point I prefer to await the results of the IAU GA meetings of
Division I and Commission 31, or some other new external input, before
hypothecating much further.
