I suspect the vast majority of non-professional S1 operators would fall
in to this category.

I'd love to see a good way to handle and address this.  There are a
bunch of other ways to connect a refclock to ntpd besides going thru
gpsd, and a variety of other interested players (like the Pool project).

This seems like a good topic to discuss on a Network Time Foundation
"channel", as gpsd and ntp are both NTF projects, and the NTP Pool
project is a friendly associate.

One of the things NTF wants to offer are a number of "certification and
compliance" programs.  This seems like a great issue for one of those,
and I'm looking for folks who would like to  participate in that effort.
