Time scales are not easily killed off. The general concept of a time
scale that uses leap seconds to coordinate TAI and UT obviously has
its advantages, and some users would presumably find it convenient to
continue to have such a time scale, even if they're no longer allowed
to call it "UTC". Would IERS be willing to continue as the canonical
arbiter of leap seconds? Or would some other de facto authority emerge?
