It might be better to maintain TZDATA in xml and have a translator back
to the current format.

Actually, the ICU team is very interested in getting this data in an XML
form as well. One of the projects on my to-do list is to make a proposal
for changes to zic that would optionally emit a (stable) XML version of
the data. If someone else gets to this first I would be happy to help.
