Well, the people living in Taiwan obviously don't want to be part of "The People's Republic of China" and it obviously isn't since it has its own government. It appears that the ISO 3166 group folded to political pressure when it chose the description of "tw". I also noticed a Solaris patch a year or two ago that eliminated the politically sensitive timezone name for Taiwan.
