That is definitely a good idea. If I didn't get it wrong,
then any TAI to Calendar Time conversion needs this
information to be accurate:
* TAI time to convert,
* TAI time when the above timestamp was created,
* and the table of leap seconds in TAI.
This is the only way a TAI timestamp into the future can be
converted back to Calender Time accurately -- at all points
in time. Or so I believe.
