IMHO: Org-mode does *not* seem to be made for managing calendar
events that go beyond simple one-time-occurrence events. but you
*have* to support at least the same featureset of Outlook Calendar
in order to think of a (two-way-) sync mechanism to Org-mode.

Yes, there is this sexp-workaround[1] for more complex things but
quite frankly: this is not an option for the ordinary user like me
(not having that much ELISP knowledge).

And even with sexp, you can not map recurring events with
exceptions, irregular recurring events, and so forth.

For me as a relatively newbee (related to Emacs and Org-mode) it is
clear that I can not move my current calendar environment to
Org-mode. Unfortunately.

So far, I do have my old calendar setup (in JPilot/PalmOS) and
additionally my task-only-related calendar in Org-mode.

But I'd love to see an advanced and easy to use calendar environment
in Org-mode!

I love Pimlical[2] and its DateBk6 for PalmOS in terms of: easy to
use, very flexible, able to map all kinds of complex requirements,
