I have convinced Wayne that a face to face meeting would clear the air.
I meet with him on Friday. I would appreciate a few examples of
specific commercial or system unique software that would be deprecated
if leap seconds and their more precise companions were deleted.

BTW, the Moslem day begins at observable moon rise, which is different
than sunset. Orthodox observers in several religions (Judiasm, Islam,
and others) are very concerned about precise definitions of these events
and timing of prayer intervals.
