Complicating matters somewhat is that, because of the prevalence of tzdb,
in a sense we're "victims of our own success". That is, whatever we end up
picking will likely show up fairly automatically in a lot of public-facing
places, and so even if it isn't what the public would've naturally used in
the immediate aftermath of a change, many will be fairly quickly informed
by what they start to see, and may start adopting and spreading whatever
nomenclature we've picked.
