This only speaks of properties, parameters and values. However, VEVENT and 
VTODO are calendar components. I did not find any mention of calendar 
components being case-insensitive (admittedly, it is also not stated, that 
they are case-sensitive). 

I seem to remember that we had some problems with some iCalendar library (I 
think it was libical) expecting VEVENT etc. in uppercases only...

So, is the general understanding of this working group that icalendar 
component names are case-insensitive? If so, this should be clarified for 
rfc5545.

Cheers,
Reinhold
