Very few timezone examplar cities on en.xml and three XML tags are in wrong order and using wrong name

Description

I've noticed that two of the tags are using the "zone" tag and not "metazone" tag. And they are also not sorted correctly under <timezoneNames>.

			<zone type="Europe/London">
				<long>
					<daylight>British Summer Time</daylight>
				</long>
			</zone>
			<zone type="Europe/Dublin">
				<long>
					<daylight>Irish Standard Time</daylight>
				</long>
			</zone>
...

			<zone type="Pacific/Honolulu">
				<short>
					<generic>HST</generic>
					<standard>HST</standard>
					<daylight>HDT</daylight>
				</short>
			</zone>

There are also very few exemplar cities in en.xml compared to other languages.

The "zone" tagged items apply only to specific IANA timezones, and not to the metazone as a whole. The sort for these is by country code, which is why Europe/London is first ( country code GB ) then Dublin ( country code IE ), and then Honolulu ( country code US ).

The reason English doesn't contain many exemplar cities is that the proper city tag is derived from the name itself ( i.e. English doesn't need an exemplar city name for "London" because it can be derived from the timezone name "Europe/London".

See tr35 for a more complete description. There is no error here, as far as I can tell.

I beg to differ. These exceptions lead to problems that should be removed. See:
ticket:7623: Don' use GMT/Greenwich time in non-generic timezone designations
ticket:7622: Remove (i.e. replace) the timezone overrides
