We are still, for instance, supporting SLE 12, which is on GNOME 3.20 as of SP2. But, from what I gather, it is recommended to ship the newest WebKitGTK release, in order to provide security fixes, although this becomes increasingly difficult over time when we are shipping versions of several libraries that WebKit no longer supports. Anyway, which versions of libraries to support is a larger question than just icu, and this wouldn't be the only downstream patch that I'd need to carry...
