What about making the leap seconds table (LST) a parameter of the UTC/TAI 
conversion? The LST could be some abstract type, readable via an IO action 
either from the System (if future systems support this) or from some file. 
The point in time up to which the table is garanteed to be accurate should be 
a (queryable) property of the LST.
