No, that's all there is to it.

I don't care how you decide the leapseconds, or who does, as long
as we get know when they happen with 10 years notice.

If WP7A pushed a proposal that just changed the text to say that
DUT1 should be kept minimal and that warnings must be 10 years,
would that work ?

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