As I recall, Dave implemented the KOD stuff because he saw clients that
started making requests once per second if they thought "the server
can't hear me".

With KOD the client does get a response, and one that is formatted in
such a way as any passably functioning client will see the response and
decide to simply go away, as opposed to continuing to ask the server
for the time.
