Here's a first clue that doesn't concern the SyncML part but the 
MobileMe Pubsub mail notifications 

All this makes think that not only there could be SyncML calendar events

published with PEP, but also mail notifications and by extensions 
voicemail and fax notifications (with a derived version of 
draft-ietf-sieve-notify-xmpp - actually this draft should use PEP, IMHO,

but I disgress).

Regarding the SyncML synchronization mechanism, not sure there's any 
public documentation yet.
