The original reason for the latest discussion was actually precipitaed
from a request of clarity into why Greenland time zone designator was
changed from GST/WGST to -3. The original author said that he felt
GST/WGST was in common usage.
I believe the answer should have been that he should provide evidence
that it is in common usage in Greenland, preferably documentation of
what the Greenland government prefers for the designator.
