I'm afraid this will have to be adjusted on the Microsoft end. There needs to be 
a procedure for removing time zones that turn out to be mistakes. 
America/Santa_Isabel is a mistake, and I suppose we can view this as an 
opportunity for ironing out any procedural glitches while removing it. We do 
have a backward compatibility link on the tzdata side; perhaps that will help 
for the Microsoft side.

We can create a zone America/San_Quintin if that happens.
