There is only a draft yet, which document in which version did you read?

Thanks for taking the time and helping us with your detailed
and helpful criticism.

The design of the Kolab2  storage format 
(assuming that this is what you are ranting about). 
is as simple as we could to it.
We learned that from experience.
Our goal is to get Kolab2 working for users 
and there was no way to do thatwith iCalendar as storage format. 
We challenge other projects to prove us wrong.
