thanks for publishing the draft.
My idea is to get spec 2.0 released and then set up a better process
for going from there. Doing draft releases or KEPs (Kolab Enhancement 
Proposals) is a good idea. I guess we should track them somewhere,
e.g. in the Wiki.

Of course it would be fine to have a format for this.
You've missed how many folders you would propose for this?
Also for a good completion we should look at how other clients do it,
so that our first move is already good enough to cover a large section of the 
problem space.

Clients like "worklog" (which I use for timetracking) or KArm and whatever 
people use on Windows/Outlook.
