Awesome page. But I'm afraid that it won't go down well with some of these

"Therefore, any change of name of the broadcast time scale can only be
considered if there already exists a mechanism by which the radio time

scale named UTC."

The notion of having to keep UTC around could very well be why the 2003
Torino recommendation (the name change) has disappeared.
