	More. There are more receivers and more dependence on 
	accurate time, e.g. accounting, backups, ticketing.
	Somewhere, somebody, witha  "blind" dependence on the
	NTP presentation will be out of sync w/ their neighbors
	& themselves and at best will waste time argueing about 
	when something happened. At worst they'll overwrite critical 
	data that has financial implications...  I predict.
	Or I could just get/stay lost...
