I think it is a waste of time to worry about the timezone abbreviations in
the tzdatabase.

 Despite being around for years, the vast majority of the ones that are in
the files are not familiar to people in the timezones in question, and are
thus essentially useless. Moreover, they are only in a single language
(English) and script (Latin). Time spend on talking about them would be far
better spent doing something productive.
