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.
