Thank you, Warner, for your thoughtful reply enumerating the reasons
that you are in camp #2. It caused me to research the matter further,
so that I could understand your point of view.

I purchased a copy of the IEEE 1588 standard and began to study it.
Referring to IEEE 1588 (= IEC 61588) and a table on the IERS Web site, I
was able to prepare a table summarizing the behaviour of the UTC, TAI,
GPS, NTP, and PTP time scales, espeically at times at or near a leap
second. I've attached that table as a *.PDF file.

Would you be kind enough to review it, to see if I've got it right?
