Dear Paul, we suggest two names: 

America/PuntaArenas (main city of region) 
Chile/Magallanes (region name, according to Chile directory name structure)

Thanks for the heads-up. This also affects Antarctica/Palmer. Proposed patch 
attached. Although we might need to tweak the transition date once the official 
decree is published, I don't see that affecting the clocks. 

This change does not appear to be urgent, as clocks aren't affected until

That's a bit long, so the proposed patch uses "Region of Magallanes", which 
contains those provinces.
