Hi Martin,

thanks for finally publishing an update. Overall your update looks good. There 
are still some nits, see below.

> - The following explicit list of tags is allowed within a subevent:
>     <inline-attachment>(string, no default)</inline-attachment>
>     <link-attachment>(string, no default)</link-attachment>

Why is just one attachment allowed in a subevent? Event allows n attachments, 
both elements are enclosed in { }.

> - one or more <subevent> entries are only allowed if a <recurrence> is
> present in the primary <event>.

I think this sentence doesn't need to be explicitly written for your current 
draft because subevent is only allowed within <recurrence>. I think this is a 
leftover from the previous draft.

I still (see my mail from 2006-12-07) think that we need to think about <body> 
to match the features of Outlook 2000-2007 (as seems to be the goal and is 
explicitly written in your mail). Outlook can store html-like rich text with 
positioned attachments in its body while we just allow plain text.

Kind regards,
