Considering that the Republic of Artsakh declared independence in 1991, there is a chance that it has followed Armenian (Asia/Yerevan) rules since it declared independence, and thus there is no need for Asia/Stepanakert. However, this is just a guess, and we need more research before deciding whether there is a need to create the zone.
