Could you switch based on the actual class type now, instead of having to use .GetType().Name(), i.e.:

bcl switch
    GregorianCalendar _  => CalendarSystem.Iso,
    HijriCalendar _ => CalendarSystem.IslamicBcl,

Not sure if the _ is actually needed or can be left out altogether

We couldn't do so before, not due to switch expressions but because we couldn't refer to the specific calendar system types in more limited environments.
Now we only support netstandard2.0, this might be feasible - thanks for highlighting it. Will have a look...
