For instance, Steve's suggestion could be implemented in parallel to changes to increase the scheduling horizon of leap seconds. In fact, these could be coordinated (but loosely) parts of the same infrastructure improvement project and with a cautious roll-out as advised by Warner.

To be fair, Poul-Hennig and Tom (and likely others that I'm forgetting)
have also suggested a slow start at various times, with variations that
I had never thought of (like purposely pushing the limit to about 1.1s
and dropping it back to 0.1s just to see what breaks). This is, of
course, a decades long approach and preserves all the problems of the
current system without providing much relief for years to come...
