Note that this is true only because Apple's implementation of the 
program iCal.app is programmed that way.

The spec does not say anything about this unidirectionality.  Other 
applications allow for read/write access just fine.

It would seem that if an iCal-spec-speaking application were to be given 
knowledge of a Tahoe capability and what to do with one, then publishing 
over Tahoe would work fine.

Yet another vote for a good Fuse implementation?
