draft-douglass-timezone-11: removal of timezones?

Reported by: eggert@… Owned by: cyrus@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: service Version:
Severity: Active WG Document Keywords:


I suggest removing the last paragraph of section 4.2.3 for two reasons. First, there is a provision for handling deleted timezones, namely, retrieve the database without using "changedsince". Second, it is not bad practice to delete timezones. For example, tzdata's release 2014f deleted the zone Asia/Harbin? (replacing it with a backward-compatibility alias) as its data turned out to have been largely imaginary.
