Suggest HI for timezone selection (was about Data to support such)
Deleted Component: xxx-spec
Right now there is not enough data to support a resonable HI for time zone
selection. Apple does this by maintaining its own database with custom data. See
"Date & Time Preferences" or time zone selection in iCal for examples. This
custom data has to be maintained separately from the Olson data.
It's not clear how much of this data should be in CLDR vs. being incorporated
into the Olson data itself.

In Section 5.9.2 Time Zone Names, added a note recommending use of generic location format in user interfaces for timezone selection, and referring to the Date Field Symbol Table table and Appendix G (where this is also discussed); fleshed out the discussion in Appendix G a bit.
