Missing in the mappings at ​​http://unicode.org/repos/cldr/trunk/common/supplemental/metaZones.xml:

Which causes Atlantic/Madeira to fall back to Atlantic/Canary.

With the current CLDR specification, Europe/Lisbon cannot be regional 'golden zone' for metazone 'Europe_Western', because Lisbon was in Central Europe Time from 1992 to 1996.

Which causes Atlantic/Madeira to fall back to Atlantic/Canary.

I don't understand this statement. You cannot round trip zone -> time zone display name -> zone, except for location name. When such roundtrip happens, CLDR design only guarantee the result zone is equivalent to the original zone. This is the reason why Europe/Lisbon cannot be included in the mapping data.
