It is available, but not for the validator... I mean the pages with ICQ-status-indicator, like my own homepage, http://koti.mbnet.fi/~villes/me.html , or at least http://koti.mbnet.fi/~villes/icq.html . 
Also the discussion forums of http://www.AntiOnline.com/ use the ICQ "Add me!" -buttons in the messages of users who has got an ICQ-account.
