Thanks for the earlier feedback on the media type registration for application/calendar+xml. I've published an updated draft that incorporates that feedback: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-daboo-et-al-icalendar-in-xml/.

The spec changes based on the discussion feedback include:

1.       Changed media type registration file extension to "xcs"

2.       Changed media type registration follow up email to ietf-calsify@osafoundation.org

3.       Updated several parts of the specification to show how most future extensions to iCalendar can be handled without changing this specification

4.       Updated security concerns in section 5

5.       Updated encoding considerations

Here is the updated media type registration from the current draft:

Type name:
Subtype name:
Required parameters:
Optional parameters:
method, component and optinfo as defined for the text/calendar media type in [RFC5545]; charset as defined for application/xml in [RFC3023]; per [RFC3023], use of charset is "STRONGLY RECOMMENDED"
Encoding considerations:
Same as encoding considerations of application/xml as specified in [RFC3023]
Security considerations:
See Section 5.
Interoperability considerations:
This media type provides an alternative format for iCalendar data based on XML.
Published specification:
This specification.
Applications which use this media type:
Applications that currently make use of the text/calendar media type can use this as an alternative.
Additional information:
