Not sure BIPM is necessarily the appropriate agent, but otherwise
agree 100%. Perhaps we should seek other areas of agreement rather
than continually focusing on issues in hot debate.

Both this and the extended leap second scheduling represent
improvements to infrastructure that would also support market-based
decision making about civil time issues in general. The current
timekeeping landscape is simply too sparse to create significant
emergent behavior.
