There will likely be problems, yes. See "Samoa awakes to time change 
<https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/tz/2021-September/030796.html> for how 
things worked out in Samoa last month, though admittedly Samoa gave even 
less notice than Fiji is giving and other reasons also contributed to 
the fact that we published a new tzdb release barely in time.

We do want to give early-adopters a chance to get it right, though. So 
although I don't think we should cut a new tzdb release today (as 
there's a chance Fiji's government will change its collective mind if 
enough comments arrive shortly), we should do it reasonably soon.
