Agreed, everybody's idea of mine needs to be consistent, including freebusy.

I think this is a good feature, we'll probably want it eventually, but I
don't think it's on the critical path for 0.7 users.
So, to summarize my current plan for free/busy publishing, I'm going to
move forward with:
"Publish my freebusy" will ask the user to choose a server, and create a
collection (not displayed to the user) containing
Mine - (items appearing in collections that are shared to the given server)
A URL will be returned which a free/busy report will need to be run against.
