In iCal (and therefore presumably hCal), the following rule applies
for events that lack a DTEND or DURATION:
cases where a "VEVENT" calendar component specifies a "DTSTART"
property with a DATE data type but no "DTEND" property, the events
non-inclusive end is the end of the calendar date specified by the
"DTSTART" property. For cases where a "VEVENT" calendar component
specifies a "DTSTART" property with a DATE-TIME data type but no
"DTEND" property, the event ends on the same calendar date and time
of day specified by the "DTSTART" property."
Therefore your markup would therefore have an implicit DTEND at the
end of 15th Dec 2005, by my reading of the spec.
Unfortunately I don't think ISO8061 has a way of representing 'now' -
the only thing I could suggest would be that you set it equal to the
document's publication date, maybe using PHP as you suggest.
