I don't believe the rule names have any particular meaning.  They are just used inside the zone files as a name for a specific collection of rules.  They are not visible except in those source files.  If you change them to rule1, rule2, and so on, the resulting time data for all the regions would not change at all.

Can anyone please advise on where I can find the Rule name history for each country/region?

The data I'm interested in is as follows:
- AQ, Oz: I don't know to which area/country this is referring to as it is not listed on tiscali
- C-Eur, E-EurAsia - are these valid/active rule names in use? or used parallel? not sure if any of them is a historic name for Europe that's why I'm looking for archived rule names. I believe some of these were used up to some point in the past and then switched to a new name...

And I also have some other countries like Pakistan, Palestine where I would like to check the DST history.
