In the Church of Poland all Saints canonised after introducing revised-Julian calendar have separate commemoration days in the old and new one. Commemoration day in the new one is set 13 days later than in the old one (so the Saint is commemorated on the same civil day in both calendars).

Is this practised in other Churches? Why is it done?

Here in the States, we do that with St. John Maximovitch, who reposed in 1966, long after the calendar reform was begun. Since he died on July 2 (New Calendar) and on June 19 (Old Calendar), we who follow the New Calendar commemorate his falling asleep on July 2, while those on the Old Calendar do so on June 19. It just happens that those two dates fall on the same date relative to the civil calendar.
