The original AP article which brought the proposed "toss the time
error corrections to frequency" experiment to light referred to it
only as a proposal.  Given the level of bureaucracy involved in
coordinating power grids, I can't imagine how you read that as a done

That same story also quoted the heads of both NIST and USNO
timekeeping saying there would be widespread effects.

I stand by my "seems to be stalled at the moment" assessment.
