URLs are good unique identifiers (the problem about namespaces is also
solved with them) I think that using an ID attribute in every vevent
element (so the event has a permalink) and using that permalink as UID
the problem could be solved. That way clients could update event data
and hCalendar-powered lists could be used as subscription channels for
event data (applying the suitable transformations), so I think UID
should be mandatory

Am I mistaken? What about paginated calendars?
