For my use cases of diffing and machine parsing, the fixed with format is useful, as is always specifying both the daylight/standard indicator and the name.

I know you were’t asking me, but here’s my opinion anyway.  I strongly agree with Jon on every point.  My position is one of a 3rd party date/time library author wanting validation against both zdump *and* other 3rd party software such as NodaTime.
