If Ukrainian people and Ukrainian government want people call the capital
city as Kyiv instead of Kiev, Ukrainian government should probably launch a
clear campaign sending this message to the world like how Czech government
tell the world the country is named Czechia, or like how Kazakhstan largest
city changed the English name from Russian Alma Ata to Almaty

But in the context of tz database, if in case such campaign have been
launched and most media as well as other usages do switch over to new name,
will tz database follow such rename? As I understand one of the principle
in tz database zone name is that names act as key and thus won't easily be
renamed. Would such renaming break anything if it do occur?
