[time-nuts] low power, but quiet, oscillators

We're always looking for low DC power, but quiet (close in), oscillators
for spaceflight applications, particularly as the spacecraft get smaller.
I was intrigued by the paper Ulrich posted which actually called out a
"mW RF out for mW DC in" as part of their FoM.
Is there a list somewhere of what sort of DC/RF efficiencies are
possible/typical. In particular, I'm interested in topologies/designs
that put out low powers.. (1 mW or less). There's lots of designs that
put out a convenient +10dBm or +13dBm or 3.3V CMOS square wave or
whatever.. but sometimes, you only need to radiate a few mW (I would
think the low power Bluetooth/Zigbee/802.15xxxx folks have been thinking
