10 microsecond latency doesn't say anything about how accurate the time has 
to be.

Does anybody have a good URL on the accuracy requirements of banks and/or

to understand them separately but I won't be surprised if they are thoroughly 

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
