Still no leap seconds

Just got a copy of Bulletin C telling me there will be no leap second at the end of June 2004.

That makes over five years now without a leap second (the bulletin said that the difference between TAI and UTC has been constant at UTC-TAI = -32s since 1999-01-01T00:00:00), which surprises me a bit; I thought that leap seconds were introduced, on average, every two or three years.

I suppose the earth has been spinning a bit more regularly since then, or something.
