To some extent it's self-defense, as we don't have the resources to be 
friendly to the billions of potential tzdb users. The main problem here 
is a resource issue, not a technical issue.

Perhaps you could help organize a set of sites willing to volunteer to 
be tzdb mirrors and to take requests from individual users. As long as 
the need is small you could mirror the data yourself. Perhaps you could 
use a free website service like Neocities, for example.
