This somehow doesn't make sense. Given you have a clock that generates
UTC(k). How can you not also generate TAI(k) at the same time?
(modulo leap seconds of course)

>From a technical point of view, if I had to run a clock that generates
UTC(k), i would let it run as TAI(k) and apply an offset to derive
UTC(k) from it. And i would have thought that this is the way how the
UTC(k) references are generated. Or am i missing something important?

The trouble with you, Shev, is you don't say anything until you've saved
up a whole truckload of damned heavy brick arguments and then you dump
them all out and never look at the bleeding body mangled beneath the heap
