Unfortunately, I can't contact both of them.

Of cause, Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh properly need to fix.

Wiki [1] point out Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh timezone diff from 1970 - 1975:
Hanoi used GMT +7 while Ho Chi Minh used GMT +8. So I sure timezone in
Hanoi is unique. You decide add or not by yourself.
I read carefully both [1] and [2]. They are the same content. I think
they are the best document. So you can use [1].

Paul Eggert, please make new patch. I will review.
About Cambodia and Lao, I recommend remove them. They can use
Asia/Bangkok instead. Unique timezone for them will create when we have
enough document.
