Case __folding  __may be seen as universal, but case mapping has a few 
locale specific tweaks (very few).

The FAQ states:

"To make case mapping language sensitive, the Unicode Standard 
specificially allows—but does not provide the necessary 
data—implementations to tailor the mappings for each language. The file 
<> is 
included in the Standard as a guide to a few of the more important 
individual character mappings needed for specific languages, notably the 
Greek script and the Turkic languages. However, for most 
language-specific mappings and tailoring, users should refer to CLDR 
<> and other resources."

So you'd expect to find some data in CLDR.
