well, I have not heard any good (actually none at all) arguments pro- 
UUID, contra X-UUID yet.

Apple does not port the software to Linux :-)

No. CalDAV does not enforce uuid's. Thats a very special thing of the  
Apple server. Both, server and client need to deal with any iCal  
ATTENDEE ID. Can be UUID, mailto, tel, anything.

As of now, there is no way to resolve UUID ATTENDEEs. Its plain  
impossible for a client to remap incoming iMIP messages (a UUID is  
completely opaque to the client).
