Is that not sitting on the fence, and ending up with the worst of
both worlds? It is neither as precise as leap (micro, milli, or
whole) seconds, nor as long term as leap hours. It would put off the
updates for only a few tens of years, by which time experience of
them would have been lost, and our descendants would end up with Y2K
type problems.
