I don't think this is an issue which only Tz community can make a decision
on. This "Etc/UTC" defined also in CDLR data as an alias. See

<type name="utc" description="UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)" alias="Etc/UTC
Etc/UCT Etc/Universal Etc/Zulu UCT UTC Universal Zulu"/>

Personally, I don't like the "EARTH/UTC" idea, it seems kind of ugly. Only
UTC would be enough in my opinion.
