Sorry, I didn't quite follow that. The intent is that if there's a
transition between 12-31 23:59:59.999... UTC in year N and 01-01 00:00
UTC in year N+1, the transition is reported in year N. The other way
would work too, as long as it was done consistently, but this way should
be a bit easier to compute.
