If this turns into a serious thing then it deserves consideration
whether such servers should be UT1, or instead UT2.

UT2 was the standard in the CCIR recommendations for radio broadcasts
before UTC with leap seconds (and in fact it was specified as the
underlying time scale in the first version of the CCIR leap second
document) specifically because it was smoother than UT1 over the
course of a year.
