Where and by who is that "taken to be UT1" ?
Just because the additional DUT information is broadcast is no guarantee
that any decodes it and uses it.
And I certainly do not see a DUT offset between NTP servers in the
rest of the world and NTP servers in the UK.
You will need to document this claim before anybody will buy it,
and I am quite sure that if you can, a lot of people will be

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
