iCalendar supports repeated events with no end.  I wonder if we could  
use that to suggest ongoing events.  For example, instead of saying I  
started my current employment on 2007-05-31 with no end, I could say  
I started at 2007-05-31 09:00:00, ended at 2007-05-31 17:00:00, and  
repeat that every weekday with no end to the repetition.  That's  
probably more information than anyone's actually publishing, but if  
that's workable in iCalendar, we could maybe come up with a shorthand  
for it in hCalendar.
