Is it time to go with something less geographical (and thus less political/cultural/etc.) to identify tzdb regions?  I guess if I had USD 1329.00 burning a hole in my pocket, I could buy the IANA "UTC/Local Time Comparisons":


and see what their two-character "Time Zone Code"s are, and whether they would correspond to tzdb regions.  If so, maybe we could ask their permission to use them.
