As was discussed on the original thread in October 2014, pre-unification
time in Hanoi matches Asia/Bangkok since 1970 and thus is already
considered covered by the database.  See
https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2014-October/021669.html, and refer to
the inclusion of "VN" in the following line of zone1970.tab:

TH,KH,LA,VN     +1345+10031     Asia/Bangkok    Indochina (most areas)

Though perhaps this warrants a brief comment in the "Vietnam" section of
the asia file.
