Sorry I can't make Jabber sessions, but here is an alternative text idea
regarding DTSTAMP.


Old text:

 > Purpose: The property indicates the date/time that the instance
 >    of the iCalendar object was created.

New text:

 > Purpose:  This property is used to determine the correct version of an
iCalendar
 > object to use, when presented with two different versions of the same
object. For
 > example, two iTIP REQUESTs to change meeting time for the same meeting
arrive,
 > or two different files with METHOD:PUBLISH are found describing the same
events. 
 > The object with the later DTSTAMP identifies the most recent copy and
MUST be used. 

With this new text, I would leave the old text about CREATED and
LAST-MODIFIED alone.
