Probably an important point to mention is that we are planning on
having a list view for Cosmo. We are still working out how much of a
list view we can get done in time but some work has certainly started
and we will be scoping this out in more detail over the coming weeks.
It seems to me that people are using the account browser for this
purpose right now because it's the only alternative.
As far as the month view goes, we simply had to cut something and we
determined that having a week and day view were more widely used. I
certainly expect this to come up in dogfood feedback since the month
is useful in a number of circumstances. Again, hopefully the list
view will address some of the use cases where users are viewing
sparsely populated calendars.
