OK. But is this relevant for Outlook, that is, does Outlook actually  
support such a setup?

This was my real question, which Outlook recurrence setup is not  
supported by Kontact?


PS: IMHO the uid/recurrence-id is quite important in the real world  
(and btw explicitly mentioned/supported in CalDAV). Maybe you can  
somehow workaround using the CalDAV approach (storing multiple  
vevents in memory under a single uid)?
