There are indeed multiple cases of valid recurrance semantic in Outlook which 
cannot expressed in the Kolab XML Format. This is mainly due to the fact that 
Kontact is not able to understand the same set of recurrance rules as OL.

There is still some work left though as you stated correctly the format covers 
more than 99.9% of the real worl cases. 

The main problem with the missing support is that it means really bad 
usability as the user notices the problem typically much too late.
