And yet people apply critical monthly patches from Microsoft and Oracle all
the time without running them through dev and q/a.

If time synchronization is business critical then it should be managed that
way.  For consumer operators there are trivial replacements. If you can't
figure out how to protect your infrastructure then you don't deserve much
(some but not much, Sony) sympathy.  This is simply not on the scale of
recent significant problems.
