I disagree.

The LMT figures are nonsense, since they apply only to a narrow stripe
within each zone. I'd like to see them all removed.

Rather, we should have markers of when zonal times, as opposed to LMT,
first came into effect. For places where we know the legal change point,
such as the UK, this is a "happened at" date-time. For places where we
don't, it's a "happened sometime before" date-time, and we probably want a
way to distinguish these.

But don't put LMT values in the files; remove the ones that are there.
