Excuse me while I ramble a bit.

By "these" you mean vtodo and vfreebusy? Is it only vjournal that's

I'd be inclined to agree with tracking the iCal-Basic draft, rather
than the RFC., but this leaves out VTODO. It's also noteworthy that
Royer's intention was to document the emerged, de-facto standard, yet
Apple's iCal uses both the excluded VTODO and VTIMEZONE.
Personally, I'm not tied to any of the components. My protestations
result from my initial confusion after the wiki guided me toward use
of vjournal, which is, in the real world, not a member of hCalendar.
So I was left deciding how to mark up my content based on a survey of
the tools I want to benefit from, which begs a few questions about
what purpose the wiki serves. ;-)
Maybe we need a reference validator? As a new adopter, I certainly
would benefit from one.
