No, it is not specific to MikTeX.
I get the same with
    XeTeXk, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.999.7 (Web2C 7.5.6)
on  MacOS X.

Presumably the primitive comes with an even later version
of XeTeX itself.

You can just hit return a couple of times to continue
processing past this point.

What I'd like to see is for Polyglossia to do a version check,
skipping this for versions that do not support \newXeTeXintercharclass .

Of course, updating XeTeX from sources is another option.
