Probably I'm missing something, but why "2:00 AM CST to 1:00 AM CDT". In the
spring, 1:59:59 is followed 1 second later by 3:00:00 CDT. I don't
understand why you have it in the other direction.

You're right, that should have been "fall back from 2:00 AM EST to 1:00 AM
CST, then again from 2:00 AM CST to 1:00 AM CDT". Sorry about that.
From the final DOT ruling (posted earlier) it appears as though that is in
fact the correct behavior, too, as odd as it is.
