<auto-schedule> means that the resource or location will automatically 
respond to any scheduling invites sent to it. i.e. if you add the location 
as an attendee to an invite and send out the invite, the server will 
intercept the invite for that resource, check that it does not conflict 
with an existing event on the calendar for that resource/location, and then 
send back an appropriate schedule reply (accepted or declined) and "book" 
the event on the calendar if accepted.

This is appropriate behavior for non-restricted locations/resources (e.g., 
ones used on a first-come-first-served basis). For "managed" access 
(restricted), you would turn auto-accept off, and then the delegates would 
manually process the invites, accepting/declining as appropriate.
