Robert, thanks for the careful (as always) review.

Just on one point -- the authors can reply to the others:

> It doesn't look like application/jscalendar+json has had a media type review.

There aren't formal media-type reviews for types registered in
IETF-consensus documents: see Section 3.1 of RFC 6838.

That said, Section 5.1 of 6838 says this:

   Notice of a potential media type registration in the standards tree
   SHOULD be sent to the mailing list for review.
   This mailing list has been established for the purpose of reviewing
   proposed media and access types.

I strongly encourage the authors to follow the advice in that section
now: it's not too late.  And I'm sorry that I didn't catch that
myself; thanks for picking it up.
