I thought that since ntp/1588 are used in places that might not have access to the wider internet it would make sense to allow (but not require) them to distribute this information when used in environments that need this information more readily than saying 'goto http://usno.navy.gov/dut1.dat for the latest'.
There can be a standard protocol and data format, available from many URLs, private or public. I think it's reasonable to expect people running custom private installations to configure their own DUT1 servers alongside their NTP servers.
