    Oh! This was interesting. I always thought that TAI was not tied to one particular clock. ... And indeed, after reading the relevant wikipedia article, I think it's fair to say that TAI is not in fact tied to one particular clock or set of clocks; specifically, it appears to me that if you set up a good number of atomic clocks and corrected for their altitudes, you would arrive at the same second duration that the existing TAI network does. No?
