Yeah, however in the current situation when manufacturer choose to default
the time in Xinjiang to UTC+8, UTC+6-users in the region can only pick for
example some Russian cities in their device to force their devices to use
UTC+6, and those other UTC+6 towns could have could shift their time or
change DST setting which make the option less than ideal as an substitute.
