If the concern is only about that bit, then we can choose another one
from the range 0x0f00 instead.

It seems to me that the ability to jump the clock is a very useful
feature, at least when implementing a clock servo for PTP in user
space, if not in other cases, too. I wonder why that option is missing
from the interface in the first place.

I am not aware of any serious attempt to get any kind of standardized
PTP clock support into any other OS. As far as compatibility with NTP
is concerned, why can't we let Linux set an example and let
NTP/BSD/*nix follow us?
