Well, it *is* confusing for people who haven't implemented CalDAV, but 
other WebDAV extensions, such as SEARCH (which successfully avoided 
overloading properties).

"the CalDAV way", we should choose the former (and this also applies to 
other aspecs I haven't mentioned yet, such as the requirements on ETag
