What is an event is a part of a larger event, which is part of a still
larger event? Which one is the 'calendar' then?
No, an event is an event is an event.
I have maintained in the past, and continue today, that there should be
a tag indicating that one item is a 'parent' of another, so that all
events, be they large, medium or small, as tagged as events, and related
to each other through tjhis 'parent' relation.
