Just being polite and not placing unnecessary load on the stratum 1
servers.  I don't *need* more, and going across the 'net and all I doubt it
would make enough difference anyway.

As you note, though, having a good time source has been very helpful in
tracking down abuse cases and other legal-type stuff.  (We are way ahead of
most law enforcement personnel I've run into on that issue.)  Hence my
desire to improve in this area, even though I don't need timing for any
telco equipment (yet).
