I see that a lot of @draft ICU 3.8 tags got mis-updated to @stable ICU 4.0: r23962
All of them should have been updated to @stable ICU 3.8 instead, not 4.0. We don't change the version number unless we change the API: http://icu-project.org/userguide/design.html#ICU_API_compatibility
This should be fixed to avoid messing up our version tagging of APIs. We should also announce this mix-up to our users.
Note: I did not look at ICU4J tags.
