It logically ought to provide complete coverage of geographical zones.
I've just checked this, and it turns out it does.  The only canonical
(non-link) zones that are not listed in zone.tab are Asia/Riyadh8[789],
Etc/*, Factory, and [CEHMPW][ES]T{,[5-8][CEMP]DT}.  It doesn't quite
provide complete coverage of geographical link zones: aside from the
"backward" links, Asia/Istanbul and Europe/Nicosia are missing from
zone.tab, being instead listed under their canonical names Europe/Istanbul
and Asia/Nicosia.
