it wouldn't work quite like that. iirc, ical would launch
auto-magically and then it would ask whether you want to put the
events into an existing calendar or a new calendar.

come to think of it, that's not subscription at all. that's import. to
my knowledge, there's no way to launch ical and have it subscribe to a
remote calendar in one step. maybe wilfredo is lurking on this thread
and can tell us :)

so probably the direction to the sharee is not "subscribe with ical by
clicking here" but rather "copy this url and plug it into the
subscribe dialog in ical".

there's no issue with having chandler subscribe to a cosmo calendar.
