Dear Steffen and the TZ folks:

Is there any one person (or subgroup of people) within the TZ Group
who Is (are) advocating that time zones be pulled out of the UTC offset
and that time zones be known simply as TZ 1-to-24?

My reference on this topic is within the right column of this page:

Is this a silly concept?  Is so, I would be very interested to learn why..
Thank you.
