I absolutely agree.
The arguments for removal of these options seem to be based on nobody
using them - however there don't seem to be many places where they are
made available. This holds true for some of the other simplification
That is, until applications make these options available we cannot tell
how much they would be used.
Removal of these options just guarantees icalendar data will never be
used in certain areas
