NASA has problems far beyond the scope of the current ITU-R effort,
and those should not cloud the issue of leap seconds.

That will need reconsideration at the point when somebody wins the
Nobel prize for demonstrating diurnal gravitational potential
variations in rates of chronometers on the geoid, or the point when
there is significant deployment of precision chronometers at locations
far removed from the geoid.
