Dear ICU team & users,

I would like to propose the following API for: ICU 51
Please provide feedback by: next Tuesday, 2013-02-18
Designated API reviewer: Markus
Ticket: http://bugs.icu-project.org/trac/ticket/XXXX

<detailed API description with exact function signatures>

Example of detailed API

I would like to propose the following C++ Locale method for ICU 50:

     * Set the value for a keyword.
     * @param keywordName name of the keyword to be set. Case insensitive.
     * @param keywordValue value of the keyword to be set. If 0-length or
     *  NULL, will result in the keyword being removed. No error is given if
     *  that keyword does not exist.
     * @param status Returns any error information while performing this operation.
     * @draft ICU 50
    void setKeywordValue(const char* keywordName, const char* keywordValue, UErrorCode &status);
