I have researched the "time over HTTPS" idea more, and nailed
down some of the details.
I have also added a HTTP header the server can send to improve
things to (almost) no end.
I have written the result up as a specification here:
Inputs, commentary, corrections etc are most welcome.
Ideally this spec should be pushed through IETF, but lets give
it a dry cleaning here first.
PS: I will release my client reference implementation shortly,
when I have had a chance to tidy it up and check it for any
obvious portability issues.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
