what are your specific thoughts in this regard? do you 
imagine "promoting" iCalendar properties to node properties 
and storing the iCalendar body as a data property? if so, 
what would happen when somebody uses WebDAV to change one of 
these properties? would you rebuild the iCalendar body using 
the new value?
