You don't need OD to share calendars. The only time OD is required is if 
you want to use the delegates (sharing) feature in the iCal client.

That said, what you do have to do is manually setup delegates/sharing 
support. Some of that you can do via the XML file, but it really depends on 
exactly how you want to do this. Cn you describe what it is you want to
