I'll make the fairly reasonable assumption that most readers of this list have
networks that span multiple buildings.

If somebody is managing to figure out that you have a GPS in Building 37, and a
GPS-based CDMA up on the corner of Building 3, and the *other* 4 clocks at
other locations and getting close enough to all of them at the same time to
conduct a successful spoofing attack, all just to move your time source a
few seconds off....

...  then the fact that GPS is spoofable is probably *NOT* your biggest
security problem.
