I'm assuming by "different calendar," you mean non-Gregorian?  If so,  
what are the use cases for non-Gregorian dates in hCalendar?  The use  
cases for Gregorian calendars in hCalendar are well-established:  
iCalendar uses Gregorian ISO 8601, so any iCalendar-supporting  
applications can make use of these dates.  But I have no idea what the  
use cases are for non-Gregorian dates   Are there many applications  
that can use such dates?  The use cases are crucial for evaluating  
whether hCalendar should support non-Gregorian dates, and if so, how  
that should work.
