The iCalendar data format [RFC5545] is a widely deployed interchange format for calendaring and scheduling data. While many applications and services consume and generate calendar data, iCalendar is a specialized format that requires its own parser/generator. In contrast, JSON-based formats as defined in [RFC7159] are the native format for JavaScript widgets and libraries, and it is appropriate to have a standard form of calendar data that is easier to work with than iCalendar.
