I didn't get a chance to reply to the original post, but my response
to "Why do we need RDF calendering?" is that there is *great* benefit
in having one style of data model for a large variety of applications
(schemas) that, in particular, you can link and reference between
them.

In this sense it's not "reinventing" calendering or replacing
iCalendar or others, so much as adapting them to the RDF model so it
can be shared among other RDF applications.

Groves also addressed this topic, although from a different angle.
Grove "notation processors" were modules that took existing or
external formats and translated them on-demand into the single
data-model style (groves).  For many applications, RDF processors
could easily do the same thing rather than developing seperate schemas
unique to RDF.
