Dear All,

We just have had a very successful VoCamp [1] behind our back, where we 
started to discuss among others the issue of representing popular 
microformats in RDF. This is a pressing question because large scale 
semantic platforms such as Sindice or Yahoo's SearchMonkey would like to 
treat microformats at the RDF level  and at the scale at which some of 
our systems work there is no possibility for reasoning. Therefore an 
agreement on the mapping is required. It doesn't matter as much what 
this agreement is, as long as it is an agreement ;)

You can see the outcomes of our current effort at [2]. One of the 
problems we spotted was related to VCal. Apparently, there is still 
significant confusion as to what the proper namespace for VCal is and 
unfortunately the spec at [3] leaves the question in limbo, using either 
one or the other namespace at various points.

So my question is: could we deprecate

|http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal#

|in favor of

http://www.w3.org/2002/12/cal/icaltzd#


and reflecting this change in the documentation at [3] and at [4]?

Thanks,
Peter
