It's just a code. Same kind of apparently stupid things get added to
database all the time, like this:
SX +180305-0630250 America/Lower_Princes
.. Where Lower Princes is more like a suburb of Sint Maarten capital city,
Philipsburg, and should not have been used even as a code. Any reasonable
user interface should use something else.
Maybe someone could maintain a database of reasonable translations in many
languages/locales for each timezone?
