Let's walk through the rest of your scenario...
If you mean, importing an entire list of shared events (a published
calendar of customer meetings) into your own calendar, or accepting a
meeting request for that customer meeting.
The meeting request is more personal, and arguably SHOULD turn on an
alarm, but using the client's defaults - not the senders.
The published calendar is more to the point. Firing lots of past event
alarms will not help you make the meeting, it will only cause noise that
you will likely dismiss inadvertently to avoid the potentially many
other pointless alarms. Even so, this is a very small edge case of
importing these events *just* as the event is starting. Your CUA could
realistically be smart enough to fire alarms for events that are also in

I think that is a user preference. I may want to see what I forgot to go
to when I get back late from a meeting.
I would rather show up 5 minutes late to a meeting with a customer than
not at all just because I was not running the CUA at the exact alarm
