I agree.

libkcal (the library implementing iCalendar for kdepim) has a "floating" 
flag for this use. And David made a note in the event format 
implementation that floating events are not supported.

I see two ways to fix this, a setting on the start-date or a separate tag:

<start-date type="all-day">...



I would very much prefer the first one. Should I add this to the

I have the list here:

The color-lable values:
#FFFFFF - None
#FF9484 - Important
#849CE7 - Business
#A5DE63 - Personal
#E7E7D6 - Vacation
#FFB573 - Must Attend
#84EFF7 - Travel Required
#D6CE84 - Needs Preparation
#C6A5F7 - Birthday
#A5CEC6 - Anniversary
#FFE773 - Phone Call

Maybe you could add some text describing the concept?
