These are indeed coming from the system timezone database, which is provided by
Ubuntu Linux's standard operating system packages.

There are a number of such pairs of 'old' and 'new' name variants sitting
side-by-side for compatibility -- even 'Asia/Saigon' and 'Asian/Ho Chi Minh' --
and since we're displaying the raw timezone identifiers you just get them all.

Note that if we add type-ahead suggestion or other such improvements, it'll
most likely make the expected modern spelling or name pop up first as well
while still keeping compatibility for people who might start typing the old
form; so we won't want to filter it out.

Going ahead and resolving WORKSFORME.
