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.
