Sure, and that's because timeanddate.com got the Pitcairn abbreviation from us, 
just as it got many of its other abbreviations from us.  We shouldn't use 
timeanddate.com as a primary source for our abbreviations (that would just be an 
echo-chamber), nor should we expect timeanddate.com to adjust immediately to a 
change in the experimental version of the tz commentary that was made just a 
couple of days ago.  Instead, we can give the commentary change some time to 
propagate, and see what happens.

There's no rush.  After all, a nice property of the change is that the data 
entries in the existing stable release already conform to the changed 
documentation, and that makes for less technical hassle for everybody involved.
