Can tilt plane error be calibrated out?

In the ADIS16203 datasheet is a figure explaining tilt plane error (reproduced below).  In the datasheet it says that 10 degrees of tilt plane error would produce +/-1 degree of inclination error.  What if my tilt plane error is greater than 10 degrees?  Is there a way to calibrate it out?  If it can't be calibrated out, would the next best solution would be to use a 3-axis accelerometer and do the calculations externally?  Do you have a document describing how to do these caluclations?
