Hi Umaoka-san,

Yes, JDK uses the time zone name translations from CLDR. Currently we 
simply map names from CLDR's standard/daylight/generic to Java's 
equivalents. Do you mean in CLDR, you guys discussed whether to flip 
standard/daylight names based on the offset being positive/negative? Or 
something else?
