London and Dublin zone definitions

Back when the "europe" file was created London and Dublin weren't observing EU rules and were in a separate section.

Hey all,

Is there a reason why the Europe/London and Europe/Dublin Zone definitions are outside the "Europe" section that starts on line # 449 in the "europe" data file?

For consistency sake, shouldn't those two sections be moved under the "Europe" section where the DST Rule for "EU" is defined?
