This task is to update current implementation of java.lang.Character, 
about some new feature of J2SE 5.0, it's important to reduce the risk of 
changing such a core class.
The "HashMap" method may introduce more complexity and more maintenance 
effort into Harmony development, so I think delegating to ICU4J is the 
better choice.
The only concern is that: does the ICU4J we currently using meet our 
need perfectly?
