 So far we got away without translating the descriptions, but it is high on the to-do-list for future releases. Then we will ship our own tz class, if we haven't been able to get it elsewhere by then, like ICU.

You are correct, not only doesn't display localized, it doesn't update itself to current settings. 
Join the locales discussion group on yahoo, tz is a big issue there.
