Interesting, I had never read AES11 before, I see they are not just scaling
to the facility but to drop hints of worldwide synchronization in there. I
would like to compare/contrast the evolution of digital timecode
distribution (AES11 spec for 1ppm), with where nationwide conventional TV
distribution was 40+ years ago (proposal for using for time-transfer with
sub-microsecond jitter and microsecond level drift over several months):
