If I understand correctly from your description, current and future
timestamps for Concordia and Mario Zucchelli are handled by Australia/Perth
and Pacific/Auckland, respectively.  Notwithstanding any historical
differences which we're not aware of, it seems there is no need for
separate entries here.

Although in the past we had, for example, a entry for Antarctica/McMurdo
that was separate from Pacific/Auckland, in recent months there has been an
effort to coalesce/link such
as to avoid duplication.
