The bottom line is iCal's delegate UI won't work with the XML configuration 
option right now, as iCal requires a directory system to lookup user data.

With the XMl config you can do this: manually configure delegates in the 
file via the <proxies> element as you have done. Then create a new CalDAV 
account in iCal using the delegate's user/pswd, but set the server address 
to the principal-URL of the location or resource (you will have to lookup 
the GUIDs for those via Safari). I believe if you do that you will see the 
resource/location calendars in the new account and will have the 
appropriate delegate access to them.
