No, I didn't claim that the consistent usage of D in %s is a random
fact. And what you write now differs from your statement that I
commented, but you deleted:
--------part 1-----------
>>>If the tz database consisted of only US timezones, it would be true
>>>"within the current tz database" that daylight savings is always D (or W
>>>or P) and never S (which means Standard time).
Did anyone claim something different?

--------part 2-----------
>>> That doesn't mean there
>>>is a rule that it always _has to be_ one of those letters.
Did anyone claim there is such a rule?
