Since you opened with this statement some might read it as having
significance to this discussion. It does not, really.

Many regard GPS as a means of dissemination of UTC(USNO), and not
itself a time scale independently. This is a technical point that has
nothing to do with leap seconds in UTC, or the lack of leap seconds in
GPS system time.
