Search should work the same across all app areas. The results should
return in a table view. We're assuming in the Beta timeframe, that we
won't have a split-pane calendar + table view that can move in sync.
As a result, it makes more sense to display search results for
calendar items in a table than on a calendar.
If you're searching in the Calendar app area, when the user deletes
the search / ends the search session, the calendar view returns.
Apologies, that should have been in the spec.
Modeless search sounds great, but isn't a requirement to get it up
Thx for the catch, Mimi
