Already had that discussion twice this month:
as explained in
Europe/Kiev is a stable English identifier which should be considered as a link
id like 6/666 and not be confused with labels which should be presented to
users: feel free to rename europe to 6 on your systems and Kiev to 666.
Labels for display are available for many languages from the CLDR project and
can be handled by the code in the ICU project.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
