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.
