Sorry, you misunderstood what I wrote.
As I already wrote in another reply I just meant that the names
presented in the user interface should be localized. Obviously this is
sometimes the case, sometimes not, and sometimes in a different way, and
it would be good to make it easier or more obvious to show consistent
information to a user.
For example, people living in Liberland may not appreciate very much
that they have to select a timezone Europe/Belgrade just because
Liberland is located at the same longitude, and happens to use the same
DST settings as Europe/Belgrade.
So it would be sufficient to add Liberland to CLDR or whatever provides
a mapping, so that Liberland can be selected for the time zone settings,
and this is the label that should be localized.
