> Is retrieving old versions of the tzdb a common use case?

Probably not a _common_ use case, but I know of multiple (separate) teams who are working on embedded systems that (will) make use of the tzdb. When they put together the support systems that'll be used for updating their devices in the field, they'll each need to download a number of older versions, so that they can test the update process against real data.
