Recently, the 'former Guadeloupe' Islands of Saint Barthelemy and Saint
Martin (northern French part) have been assigned to France.  Also
'Clipperton Island' has been assigned to France (from French Polynesia).

See ISO 3166-1 newsletter date 2007-09-21 no.VI-1.  

Would these islands now require a new timezone name?





Also, to which timezone name could one assign the following islands to?



(note: Bassas da India has a new ISO code of 'TF' - French Southern


I understand that these islands are for the most part uninhabited, thus
have not been assigned tz names.  Perhaps the 'etc/GMT...' names can be
applied where appropriate, or perhaps no name assigned to the islands
would be best.  Any thoughts?
