Yes, for example in 2072 the current guess is that Palestine will 
observe DST from March 26 through October 29, except that from September 
10 through October 15 it will observe standard time, to help observe 

This is of course sheer guesswork that extrapolates from the rules 
Palestine observed in 2022 and 2023 and announced for 2024 through 2026. 
One test of this guesswork will occur in 2041, where we're currently 
guessing that Palestine will observe DST from March 30 through October 
26, except that from August 24 through September 28 it will observe 
standard time. Quite possibly they'll do something other than predicted, 
which means we'll likely change our 2072 predictions as well.
