As people might expect, I fully agree with Paul V.

Transactional negotiations are far from flag day events. Anything that would
break DNS on a "flag day" would need an RFC stating "MUST NOT do this".
If we already have those RFCs, just fix up the software without the
hype. If there is a first movers disadvantage, just coordinate with the
major software vendors to do it at the same time. Heck, call the issue
a Denial of Service and get a CVE for it to allow date synchronization.
