[time-nuts] Traceable to NIST...??

Here's a newer article by Michael Lombardi:

Note that a measurement uncertainty analysis is a required component of 
traceability. Therefore for the GPSDO to be traceable to NIST, someone 
(either the manufacturer or the user), must perform an uncertainty analysis.

Hello, Time Nutters--

Traceable to NIST...? All you need is this LPRO Rb osc being
disciplined by a GPSDO and you can claim NIST traceability?

Not the way I understand the rules....


What say the list?
