These regulations are from FINRA which is a US regulatory company. The
timestamps already were required to have 1s resolution. This
requirement is for the clocks to have less than 1s drift from NIST
during the course of the trading day.

The weird 'Eastern Military Time' is preserved from prior versions of
the OATS specification which are on the FINRA web site.
