But CDT doesn't begin until 3:00:00 CDT.  In some sense, 2:00:00 
CDT doesn't exist.  That is, what you're proposing is that
America/Indiana/Knox begins observing CDT an hour earlier than 
the rest of the Central Time Zone.   Maybe that's right.
The ruling you posted should have been clearer, but that's not 
the fault of anyone here.
