Hrm. what's wrong with sticking close to iCalendar? I'm working on
Net::ICal, a perl implementation of rfc2445, and I was thinking
of making it capable of outputting rdf as specified by your schema,
so we can use xsl to convert it to html/other xml formats. But
if you're going to move away from iCalendar, I'd have to come up
with my own xml format.

Another question, why are <ical:VEVENT>s wrapped in a <ical::VEVENT-PROP>?
From the example data you have
(http://ilrt.org/discovery/2001/06/content/swws2001-07-30.rdf) it looks
like it's just a gratuitous extra tag.
