The true report would not be correct without a traceability certificate
and confidence interval for the TOD indication, motivated by the
measurement inaccurancies and established TDEV measures.
Naturally the next of kin doesn't really care, as they now can dump all
the junk collected in the basement. The real mourning of the deceased
from fellow time-nuts comes when they realize just how much of precious
gear has been lost forever.
