It wasn't my example. The responsibility for due diligence doesn't rest with those supporting the status quo. If you deem my emails unworthy of your time - don't read them.

Rather, proponents of redefining UTC have asserted unsubstantiated risks. The experiment has been conducted a couple of dozen times of what happens to systems worldwide during a leap second. No such experiment is contemplated even in the laboratory of what will happen as DUT1 grows. No software systems inventory is planned. No professional curiosity has been demonstrated.

Due diligence is laughably absent for this proposal.
