Yes, reflecting (as losslessly as possible) iCalendar datastructures into
RDF does seem to me to be a useful goal. By defining an RDF view of
iCalendar information, we should be able to show RDF systems usefully
querying or otherwise manipulating that data intermixed with other related
information described using other RDF vocabularies. For example, I might
want to find details of meetings, photographs etc associated with W3C
and/or ILRT folk during the WWW10 conference in Hong Kong recently. While
the iCalendar vocab would be useful for this, there are other vocabularies
I hop[e to use when composing RDF queries. Conversely, there are scenarios
(eg. library collection descriptions) where the iCalendar work could find
unexpected and very practical re-use in other RDF apps -- such as
describing library opening hours.
