Yes, you're probably right, they're likely to prefer to patch up something ultimately broken cheaply than fix it properly. I think the best that can be hoped for in the short term is a user-created infrastructure among those who care enough to bother. And just agreeing what the lengths of the seconds should be, or even the schedule for specifying them, is likely to be hard enough.
