I drafted some text along those lines, but after a cooling-off period I 
reread it and it sounded too negative. README is a high-level 
description of the project that should be welcoming, and putting 
something in there that boils down to "Don't waste our time trying to 
rename Asia/Shanghai" is off-putting. Even CONTRIBUTING is mostly too 
high-level for this sort of thing. However, CONTRIBUTING can suggest 
that if the contribution might be controversial then one should read 
theory.html first (and give a URL to theory.html). Also, while I'm at 
it, README can be reworked slightly. Proposed patch attached.
