I don't think that works too well for something like free-busy. What if
our user subscribes to our public "movies" calendar say and wants all of
them to count as busy time? (I guess there might be a better example.)
Also, if we use multiple clients the user has to configure all clients
the same way to see the same results. I believe calendar aggregation is
a sufficiently useful feature that servers should (also) be doing it and
I believe it's also the only way to get a correct free-busy result.
I understand that clients CAN do this and how. I just believe that we
should allow servers to do it and make the appropriate accomodation in
