    It won't affect the orbits, but it will affect the earth-centered
    reference coordinate systems for precision orbit determination...

    I can't see the the shifting of the axis, having an effect on the
    satellite's orbit. The earth's gravity feild, atmo drag, moon/sun would
    have way more of an effect on satellite orbit's.
    
    I don't know about you, if the axis shifts then it would effect which
    way the axis is pointing, and by how much. So the the angle between the
    equator and earth's orbital plane would change. I don't see how this
    would effect longitude. Better go back to school, as I must be missing
    something.
