Not all builds of Qt rely on ICU, unfortunately. For macOS and Windows,
mostly, Qt uses the native libraries, which allow them to get rid of
several megabytes of ICU. That means that binaries for macOS and Windows
would have to use custom Qt builds, I'm not sure the maintainers will have
the time to do it (it also raises the entry bar for new maintainers).
