I think there is a review related to format APIs ongoing for ICU 58, but there hasn’t been much talk about the C APIs alas:

Since MeasureFormat ‘and friends’ are C++, for now, I also think the best path would be a C wrapper in CF that can pass things off to Apple’s ICU or on Linux to:

I think the script to handle ninja on Linux also needed to be modified to build C++ successfully (I believe some private/internal includes needed to be set).
