I realize that most, if not all, of the pieces we need to do this
exist. The point I was trying to make is there is no document
in place to offer guidance in how to "bolt" them together.
Otherwise, we wind up with multiple server and multiple client ad-hoc
implementations, none of which interoperate.
Taking your ACL comment for instance, how do I handle authentication
for a shared calendar. Does this imply an account must exist on the
sharing server for each sharee? This would seem somewhat of a burden.
