And what happens if you ignore their edicts and do it anyway?  It's
called Civil Disobedience.  Using TAI is just like refusing to give up
your seat on a segregated bus.  Follow the example of Rosa Parks.

My Dual Scale Timekeeper will recover TAI from GPS by adding a constant
19 s offset, and it will track and serve out TAI in addition to UTR.
