I have now heard from two sources that the revised ITU-R draft
recommendation TF.460-6 passed a major hurdle in Geneva last week. It
will be sent by SG7 to the January 2012 Radiocommunication Assembly
meeting. At the Radiocommunication Assembly only countries that belong
to the ITU-R can vote and a 75% majority is required for passage of a
recommendation. I don't have the wording, but I presume it calls for
the elimination of all future leap seconds after several (5?) years
