iCalendar is ok.. Apples iCal is using it, Evolution, KOrganizer and there is 
even libical used by evo and korg.
vCard gets problematic in respect to scaling and fast indexing. While 
Kaddressbook performs quite badly in loading all records, evo stores a vCard 
inside a Berkeley DB (versions 3 ) and has an extra index for the vCards 
which scales quite good.
This can get problematic... KAddressbook is able to read and write evolutions 
addressbook but it is bypassing the wombat ( :( ).
