I would word it differently, it's the epoch of a particular line of GPS
receivers, but not of GPS itself.

Remember that any Sunday, it is likely that a GPS reciever have slipped
a multiple of 1024 weeks. NTP drivers should be able to recognice it and
compensate for it, as it is a re-occuring bug in many recievers.

This issue have been discussed over and over again at time-nuts.
