Hi Marcio!
"Metazone" is a CLDR term. See:http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-dates.html#Metazone_Names
CLDR depends on TZDB, but not vice-versa.

This is one of the most common questions we get. Being the capital is not meaningful--it's the largest city in the zone that names it. Thus, Brasilia would be in the São Paulo (or Rio de Janeiro)  zone. (Similarly, Washington DC is in the New York zone, and Ottawa in the Toronto zone.)

This is Marcio Ikeda from LG Electronics in Brazil. Nice to meet you! I would like to know if there are some background history for timezones in Brazil.It seems that Brasilia city which is the capital, is only treated as a metaZone and not a timeZone.I would like to know if are there some discussions on why America/Brasilia is not in the list.And if It is possible to include it. This is causing people from QA here to question this. Thank you!
