Wider RSS Usage?

In writing about Upcoming, an event calendar, Ray Ozzie makes an interesting point: “Each fall, as I manually enter the entire Celtics season schedule, my company’s holidays and my childrens’ school calendars into my own personal calendar, I am again reminded how ridiculous it is that The Net has not yet ubiquitously embraced the everyday exchange of virtual objects so basic as calendars and as vCards – which can also likewise be subscribed-to, aggregated into Contact Lists and auto-updated via personal RSS feeds.”

I can’t help thinking that we have been using RSS too narrowly, and haven’t looked much at standardisation of content formats and syndication enough.
