I think one of the core issues is also that there are only three things 
you can connect to a jabber system as:
1) an IM client
2) a trusted server component
3) a remote system representing either a set of clients or a component

There is thus great difficulty in building a calendaring client on top 
of jabber, because it has to be an IM client as well (or, connect as a 
trusted server component and have complete access to the entire system, 
or also write a completely new c2s which is a calendaring app to server 
component as well as a new csm which is a calendaring session manager)
