It is not an issue. iCalendar is concerned with scheduling and 
coordinating between time zones. Our primary concern is getting
the information in a RFC-2445 VTIMEZONE format.

The computer program consuming these objects will not care if
TZ-A or TZ-B are related. It will just need to do the TZ math
and know that for the current user, on the 12th instance of the
meeting it is at UTC-4 or whatever.
