I did one too, a while back, though mine was
a trivial DTD->Schema conversion. I would
love to see the schema you came up with.

I'd be interested in supporting it in
my applications if it gains some
What might be needed right now is a
'grass-roots' effort to get a grammer
off the ground and hopefully standardised
at some point when there has been
enough interest raised. Maybe get a
website up, some documentation, and a
few projects supporting it as an alternate
calendar representation. I can help with
some of that if needed.

I'd love to help with an implementation
but it would probably be a Win32
libical modification at this point due
to my resource constraints.
