Is the maintainer aware of the issues? There are a bunch of guys at 
NIST, USNO and UWisc who would really sleep better knowing the SNTP that 
comes from here is an upstart network citizen. It would also set a 
really important precedent.

An appropriate way to do this is a simple disclaimer README in the sntp 
directory that says the implementation conforms to the requirements of 
rfc4330, assuming that RFC rejoins the IETF list.

Is the SNTP maintainer contact info on the copyright page? I asked you 
for a list of folks that should be added, but have no reponse.
