I'm okay with having a new format, or with adding a function that
would return a time-zone name that is just a string, not the spec
codified by Posix.  (It could return strings like "Asia/Riyadh" on
Posix platforms.)

Great. Thanks. Either solution is fine by me.

Probably a new format is better for users (keep everything in one place), if
there are no other considerations.
