Sorry, just catching up and saw this, and decided to chime in:

Ah, but what about all the people that join the pool and run NTP servers to to research on the clients and NTPd's performance, in general?

As an operator, I'd rather have 1000 researchers poking around than 1 script kiddie looking to use the NTP pool to obscure DoS packets.
