A much bigger example is Asia/Calcutta.  "Calcutta" is still somewhat
more popular than "Kolkata" in English, according to Google, but the
margin is much closer.

There's no hurry, but I have been thinking of changing it to
Asia/Delhi.  These days Delhi is a bit larger than Calcutta/Kolkata
anyway.  And nobody is messing with Delhi's spelling.  Yet.
