Looks like the C++ MeasureFormat (and friends) have existed since ICU 3.0, although they have not yet got around to implementing a C interface. I don’t think symbolic conflicts would occur, since, if ICU did eventually introduce the C interface, I assume that it would use just a “u” prefix rather than “ua”. Not sure if that’s what you meant.
Alternatively, I suppose we could just bypass uameasureformat, and interact with the c++ api directly in CF, since it looks like it’s going to have to be setup to compile c++ anyway.
