Your statement conflicts with the actual EU law you quoted, which says:
> The decision on the standard time is a national competence.

Subject: [External] Re: [tz] Irish Standard Time vs Irish Summer Time
This whole thread appears to have missed the fact that Ireland is in the EU, and thus the normal EU rules on time apply.
In parallel to the summertime arrangement in the European Union, the Member States apply three different time zones or standard times. The decision on the standard time is a national competence. The standard time is determined in relation to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)."
"Three Member States (Ireland, Portugal and United Kingdom) apply GMT"
As such, this thread is essentially choosing between two ways of expressing the same thing - the EU way and the way it is expressed in Irish law.
The EU define "standard" one way. Irish law defines it the other way.
Since EU law takes precedence over national laws, I'd suggest the EU definition should be used, ie. tzdb should not change.
AFAIK, these are all defined in terms of "standard"
