One of the nice features of CalDAV compared to WebDAV (see below) is you can fine-tune the access control of your calendar(s). For example, you can keep a separate calendar with a schedule of doctor's appointments, and make it visible only to you; you can create a calendar for group meetings, and allow selected people with CalDAV accounts the ability to make their own entries into the calendar. For an example of the latter, see the "other" or "Nevis General" calendar under "Nevis Group".
