Is the main purpose of roughtime to give the client evidence to report malfeasance on the part of the server?

There are many devices in the whole IPv4 network that need to get time, if all these devices request roughtime from the roughtime server, will the merkle tree be large? How do you consider the storage overhead for merkle tree?

If a malicious roughtime client provides a maliciously generated time chain to a normal roughtime server, is it an attack on the roughtime server and how to detect it?
