My view is that if org-mode is stealing the calendar bindings by default
i.e. user has not enabled some specific option/configuration to do this,
then this is a bug. Org should not interfere with the key bindings of
any mode unless asked to. Some people still like to use traditional
Emacs diary rather than org agenda for scheduling meetings/appointments,
but like to use (load) org for other things (like document authoring and
TODO lists). Org should only override the calendar bindings if

If your patch fixes this, I vote to apply it to master.
