How about iCalendar Autodiscovery?

Love it or hate it, iCalendar is the pervasive calendaring format. If we can enable RSS autodiscovery then why not do the same with iCalendar feeds. Adding one line of code would make it easier for people/machines to subscribe to an iCalendar feed.

<link rel="alternate" type="text/calendar"
title="iCalendar feed for example.com"
href=""calendar.ics"" />

Should be 'the way things are'. Probably will be someday. Go to a few 'developer code weekends', write something there that uses that, explain it at the end, and it'll spread across the whole country within 6 mos.
