Comment (by dd32):

 Unfortunately these originals are currently required.

 These strings appear in the Timezone DB that PHP uses, and although they
 may not be included in all versions of that (I have no idea what strings
 the latest version includes), they'll exist in some older versions. PHP
 uses the system timezonedb, and I've personally seen it using a 10+year
 old version before.

 We could instead setup a alias for these though; Remove the original, and
 instead if it's encountered, return the translation for the correct term
 (ie. `if ( $timezone === 'Ashkhabad' ) return 'Ashgabat';`)
