> I don't know to what extent these links are considered standard (koobs)

The links like Iran are non-standard.  they are specified in the "backward" file in the IANA tzdata distribution which has the following preamble:

# This file provides links between current names for time zones
# and their old names.  Many names changed in late 1993.

I'll change "Iran" to "Asia/Tehran" in the test.

$ grep Iran Work/tz/backward
Link	Asia/Tehran		Iran
