I wasn't worried about you, I was worried that *other* people might get confused by the word "locale".  If not, great.

And, yes, that's the problem with "timezone" vs. "time zone" - they may be too similar, and, when read aloud, they sound too similar unless you make the space between "time" and "zone" into a noticeable pause, and even *that* might not help.

That's why I've used "tzdb region" in the past.
