I agree

I was thinking about how to "reverse the polarity".  The advantage of a
source transformation is that the code can be shared among all downstream
tzdata consumers.  The advantage of building it into the "compiler" is
defense against the maintainer/user mistake of simply overwriting the
tzdata files.
