I agree.

But, if we want to talk about countries, what would surely be more useful
is a list, for each country, of all the time zones that are at least
partially in that country.

Oh, please define "country". Is England a country? Wales? The Netherlands
(as opposed to the Kingdom of the Netherlands)? Sealand? Taiwan? Macau?
Bir Tawil? Liberland?

Do you really want to open this can of worms?
