Once one has a mapping between something like iCalendar and RDF, and some
sofware to go at least one way, then you don't have to take anyone into any
"fray", One could  just suck up iCal stuff and analyse with with RDF tools
etc.

The interesting exercise is to check the extent to which an application
which has been designed without RDF in mind naturally falls into an RDF
model.
