Oh, right, I missed that one, thanks for pointing it out.

Ok, so the information in F/B is indeed useful already now.
Let me note that the usecase is for me slightly dubious, when it comes to
scheduling. For shared calendars (or the f/b shared calendar usecase), it's
clear, because I want to check if the person is here or not.
When scheduling an event I'm not sure what out-of-office is supposed to tell me.
Either the participant says he can attend the event (accepted), doesn't know
yet (tentative), or can't (declined).
I trust you guys for having a usecase for that in mind though ;-)
