i18n-ISSUE-98: 13 month calendar support

188.8.131.52.9 Month state
The 'month' type doesn't allow for 13 month calendars (undecimber). The limitation to Gregorian months doesn't work here because you can't convert a month by itself to/from the Gregorian calendar.
What's the use case?
Here's a use case: A web site provides a calendar of events for a synagogue in Israel. The site groups events by month and lets the user pick the month to be displayed using an <input type="month"> element. Being the site of a synagogue, it has selected the Hebrew calendar by using the BCP 47 language tag he-IL-u-ca-hebrew. The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar with years of 12 or 13 months. This means, the input element needs to be able to handle up to 13 months.
