Now old programs don't get to run (like with suspend-to-ram) and programs that need to run can adjust it themselves. The user can always manually adjust this if/when needed and the distro can fix it by including a default "slack" for certain programs without modifying them using a "settimerslack" tool during invocation, like they can already do for nice/ionice/...) just prepend the invocation with a default maximum slack of 1 hour and your calendar app will at least every hour get to sync it's calendars...
