   The same seems to hold true for the line
        Rule  Chile  1947   only   -   Apr 1   4:00u   0       -
   because its precursor
        Rule  Chile  1946   only   -   Sep 1   3:00u   0:00    -
   does the same, and (current) usage of the Chile rules never
   starts after 1946-09-01T03Z and on or before 1947-04-01T04Z.
