I don't know why, or if their are better ways, I'm just saying people
do.  Anyone in broadcast or film media has IRIG servers they use, and
they want time from them.  Far more commonly than I imagined until
recently.  Several commercial NTP products do it, we wantt them to
convert from NP Classic to NTPsec.
