The Leap Hour Proposal is not only absurd, it is also without relevance,
there is no historical reason to belive that our successors will
refrain from tampering with the timescales we lay down today many times

So lets forget the leap hour proposal, it's serves only the role
of a Post-It note with "fix it ?" written on it.
