Without a doubt! The W3 namespace was used in this document as a 
placeholder and a discussion starter, indicating the desire that the 
different efforts converge. In fact, this document isn't even a 
specification---it's sort of a systematic process for creating a 
specification---a guide, if you will---although statements for a 
specification naturally fall out of such a process.

Hmmm... There's http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/ical.rdf and 
http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/icaltzd.rdf , but I couldn't find any 
definitive description of the syntax for a UTF-OFFSET, the content of a 
#Value_RECUR, a description of #List_of_Float, etc.

I realize I'm coming to this discussion late. I'll go over these schemas 
more closely.
