The short answer is no (ICU is not my area of expertise :-)

But I can give specific example that it is good to support.  Most
languages still use the Gregorian calendar.   ICU allows a calendar to
be associated with the locale using the unicode language extensions,
like: -nl en_US

It's not that SVN uses the Hebrew Calendar, but that users of SVN want
the Hebrew Calendar displayed to them.

AFAIK there are other fixes, and timing data associated with them
(although the latests JVMs timing data is much more up to date).
