I think it was my lack of understanding of Mexican geography. When we 
added America/Ojinaga in 2010, its commentary was "Ciudad Juárez 
y Ojinaga en Chihuahua" and I expect I didn't recognize that as Ciudad 
Juárez. More recently Mexican announcements have used phrases like 
"Juárez, Ojinaga, Ascensión, Coyame del Sotol, Guadalupe, Janos, Manuel 
Benavides y Práxedis G. Guerrero" and again, I expect I didn't recognize 
that as including Ciudad Juárez as opposed to one of the plain Juárezes 
which also exist in Mexico.

Although I also noticed this issue recently, I didn't bring it up on the 
mailing list for a correction as I was expecting us to need 
America/Ciudad_Juarez anyway for other reasons, which is what has 
happened with 2022g.
