[tz] Fwd: Proposal to rename zone.tab to region.tab

Maybe the new time.tab could get the name region.tab.

- it is a list of geographical regions
- it is not a list of time

At the same time there would be a better alignment between
documentation (Theory-file) and file names.

It would also address Mark Davis'

The old file zone.tab would be kept, and the file time.tab is new anyway.
