It would be interesting to know the reasons for this. Where they 
charsets missing from ICU or were the ICU versions of those charsets 
lacking something? I would think that if it was possible for us to feed 
those issues back to ICU and have them maintain these resources for us 
it would be a good thing. However I don't see any problem with us 
keeping the Harmony versions of these resources if need be - I don't 
feel strongly either way.
