Nothing about this seems "simple" to me :).

I meant "simple" in comparison to the rules like TZ="<-05>+5<-04>,M3.2.0/2,M11.1.0/2".

Fixed by installing the attached further patch, which also omits that hyphen - though it keeps another similar hyphen that you didn't mention. "Most style guides do advise against linking 'more' to an adjective with a hyphen, but most also recognize that sometimes a hyphen may be necessary for clarity." <https://www.dailywritingtips.com/hyphenating-more-adjective/>
