Yes, I agree.

However, I am afraid, that this is a one-man-show only (the guy
drawing Dilbert!) and he most probably wants to concentrate on
interfaces with a high effort-to-users-ratio. And this is where
Org-mode is almost non-existent: a moderate to high effort to
integrate smoothly with a *very* limited number of users/customers.

My question was not only targeted to CalendarTree in particular.
More of a general question to get the opinion of others, how they
see the need/possibilities for Groupware-features enabled by
non-Emacs-based services. Probably, it's just me who wants to
send/receive appointments to peers that aren't using Emacs.

I used CalendarTree only as an example because it is a service which
tries to combine/connect different worlds together which is an
unusual goal these days (most people want to lock you in their
service instead of connecting you). 

If the Org-mode community wants to connect to such services, the
org-mode community has to initiate it and implement it on its own -
I am afraid. Just because - compared to the rest of the IT-world -
nobody uses Org-mode.
