Exactly why can you not run ntpd and chrony on the same system at the same

I want the ability to run multiple instances of ntpd where at most 1
instance of ntpd is actually controlling the clock, specifically to make it
easy to (more quickly) analyze the performance/behavior of different
configurations of ntpd.  I understand that the boat is rocking while this is
going on, but I suspect this capability would be a useful one in at least
some cases.
