I think it was my lack of understanding of Mexican geography. When we
added America/Ojinaga in 2010, its commentary was "Ciudad Juárez
y Ojinaga en Chihuahua" and I expect I didn't recognize that as Ciudad
Juárez. More recently Mexican announcements have used phrases like
"Juárez, Ojinaga, Ascensión, Coyame del Sotol, Guadalupe, Janos, Manuel
Benavides y Práxedis G. Guerrero" and again, I expect I didn't recognize
that as including Ciudad Juárez as opposed to one of the plain Juárezes
which also exist in Mexico.
Although I also noticed this issue recently, I didn't bring it up on the
mailing list for a correction as I was expecting us to need
America/Ciudad_Juarez anyway for other reasons, which is what has
happened with 2022g.
