Obsolete makefiles should be removed before the next ICU release.

Description

Serveral Makefiles are currently being preserved in the ICU data directories which are commented as needing removal. See:
https://github.com/unicode-org/icu/blob/master/tools/cldr/cldr-to-icu/build-icu-data.xml#L393

Inparticular:

  • misc/miscfiles.mk

  • translit/trnsfiles.mk

When this is done the build-icu-data.xml files should be updated.

If people are sure this is safe to do, sure. Unless people point me at more files I’ll just delete these 2 (since they are listed explicitly as special in the new Ant file).
