So far as I am concenred, the simulator is an integral component in the
distribution, especially as it has enhanced functionality over the
previous version. As you say Sun will not include it in their
distribution, I assume Sun will commit such resources as to maintain a
separate corporate distibution. In that case, I assume Sun will commit
such resources to aid in the related development effort.
You should be reminded that Digital did commit a warm body to aid in the
development of NTPv3.
