https://data.iana.org/time-zones/data/theory.html says that the tz database
does not attempt to formally delineate boundaries between zone IDs;
nevertheless, it appears this is reflected properly in our commentary:

As such, issues with mappings of locations such as Valle Hermoso to zone
IDs such as America/Matamoros should be raised to those doing the mappings
— either the websites in question or the libraries they may be using.
