This is part of the thrill (or frustration) of working at the state of
the art limit.
At work we build state of the art deep space transponders with very low
added Allan deviation (4E-16 at 1000 sec). Figuring out a way to prove
that they work is often harder than designing and building the actual
article under test, particularly when you want to demonstrate that it
will do it with a slowly varying input frequency.
