I could tell them a whole lot of things with respect to that document,
but it would make absolutely no difference if I did, because trains
worth north of 20B$ have been built according to that spec, and
they are not going to reopen every single security approval just
because of leap seconds.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
