I would much prefer if we went with the ECMA Date object instead, as it  
has full support for getting and setting dates in UTC format, and also  
additionally supports getting the offset between the User Agent's current  
timezone and UTC.

If preserving the originating time zone for an event has interest, then  
that could just as well be an attribute on CalendarEventProperties.
