I have a cheap router sitting by my left hand as I type this, and I'm 
here to tell you that it doesn't contain an NTP server.  There's very 
little to be gained by adding an extra stratum solely for the sake of 
dividing up the hops for the UDP/IP traffic, you know.  And you're 
missing the point that what you are talking about is merely yet another 
form of external time server, not qualitatively different from any other 
as far as the Windows Time Service is concerned.
