We use the most populous city in a zone by default; this is the same as
the case with America/New_York versus America/Washington.

Subject: Why America/Shiprock?

I was just looking at the tzdata file for the entry for the Navajo

I'm curious why this entry is named America/Shiprock when the capitol of
the Navajo Nation is Window Rock. Can anyone enlighten me?
