I guess my main objection is to the recently suggested idea that
documentation that has always been part of the distribution and which
has no adequate formally-IANA-approved replacement somehow lacks
"official standing".

The solution is to either find a way to prove it has always had official
standing (the TZ coordinator has continued including these files in the
release), or to invent a process by which to give it official standing
(maybe with a quality review and rewrites/reorganization somewhere in
that process)
