Well, sure, but the timezone-data ebuild could be upgraded to check to
see if /etc/localtime is "old" or not and inform the user or even take
appropriate steps to automatically fix this (dangerous?)
This may not be possible with a direct copy to /etc/localtime, but it
should work with the /etc/timezone/MST7MDT idea since the
corresponding file can be located and compared.
