Not stupid, but designed for GMT rather than UTC. GMT doesn't have
leap seconds, it is scalar (real number, not broken down struct),
continuous and monotonically increasing, but its rate is slightly
variable and unpredictable with respect to TT, very much like a
smeared leap second.

Such as me. But not you, I gather.
