Two things:
 - the amount of information available is, imho, quite limited - basically 
the OS/kernel version and the ntpd version, IIRC.
 - I, and many other people, like to see what upstream time servers a time 
source has configured to judge reliability. I do not require this for 
membership in the pool, but it also helps me debug problems when the pool 
monitoring system marks a server unreachable but I can still reach it.
