It's very component-centric (vs. document-centric), but the message is
identical. No surprise there.

So how would an "actuate=auto" link work if only part of the linked
document is retrieved? What's a script in the document containing that
link to do, when the full document isn't retrieved? How will it know it's
not the full document? Waldo still counts in the world of documents.

I just started a SAX compliant iCalendar
