Whereas the entire tzdata.zi (without comments, and with abbreviations) is
only around 100 KB. I'll definitely prefer the latter.

This is a simplification that one may do when working on an embedded system
or such. But not in gnulib. When the entire data file is 100 KB, it is not
a good compromise to give up correctness for dates in the past, in exchange
for further data size reduction.
