Is there any theoretical reason why chrony is unsuitable for use as a
public timeserver (and all the loading, external misuse that this
entails?)  Please lets try and rise higher than "mine's better than
yours" answers, often software suits different purposes, is there any
reason why one piece of software might offer a more suitable *public"
service than another? eg compatibility with other clients? ability under
load? resistance to external abuse?

Are there any notes on configuration for acting as a public server? Is
anything else needed than "allow" in the config file? Security?
Preventing abuse, particularly denial of service?  Are there a known
chunk of users using chrony for public service?
