[time-nuts] DMTD - analog multiplier vs. diode mixer ?

My little HP5065 project is continually running into the jitter of
my HP5370B counter which is annoying me, so I'm looking int DMTD.

Everybody seems to be using traditional diode-mixers for DMTD,
and to be honest I fail to see the attraction.

Why wouldn't a analog multiplier like AD835 be better idea ?

What am I overlooking ?
