Your review could have also looked at what backends the calendaring clients use.
In the past, a lot of mail clients all used differing on-disk formats and it was a nightmare. Now almost all mail clients support IMAP.
The ical (no relation, see IETF) protocol and file format, used by iCal (no relation, see MacOS X) and others is the IMAP of calendaring. More support for it would be nice, especially as this would allow importing of corporate calendars (and TV schedules) and booking of meetings.
