Calendar interoperability

While listening to Inside the Net episode 29 podcast I learned of calconnect.org which is “The Calendaring and Scheduling Consortium” (Quote: “The Consortium is focused on the interoperable exchange of calendaring and scheduling information between dissimilar programs, platforms, and technologies. The Consortium’s mission is to promote general understanding of and provide mechanisms to allow interoperable calendaring and scheduling methodologies, tools and applications to enter the mainstream of computing.”)

In the podcast Scott Mace is interviewed and mentions calconnect.org where they recently got seven calendar systems to talk to each other. Interesting Lotus Notes/Domino and Microsoft Outlook/Exchange is included in the test using CalDAV.

This is very interesting. Would this be too late to fully incorporate and support CalDAV in Hannover/Domino Next?
