Doesn't this contradict the specification? Quoting from http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar it says: "Authors may explicitly use elements with class="vcalendar" to wrap sets of vevents that all belong to the same calendar, e.g. when publishing multiple calendars on the same page".

Could you point me to where this is documented. I've had good look at the server but can't find this anywhere.
