What I mean is that the old names where in official use for a period of time and 
those names are used in material created during that time, so the period that 
they were valid for is important information. I would go as far as to say that 
the legacy material would have been written with reference to the historic 
returns from the TZ database but that is a separate problem, and the correct 
version of TZ can easily be accessed if required.
