I don't know that I would classify an unknown attendee as invalid data. If you invite someone to a meeting that isn't a user local to the server, that would be the same criteria, no? The server accepts that data. From the user's standpoint, there's nothing invalid enough about an unknown attendee to force me to take the event out of my calendar store. It also severely hinders your ability to migrate data for users into your shiny new calendar server as there's a pretty good chance they've invited someone external to the calendar server to a meeting at some point.

...or is there a different piece of data that it's choking on that I'm missing? Is the calendar server using the UUID from the Open Directory? Since I imported those users with workgroup manager I would think they are the same, but maybe not.

P.S. Where my original message in this thread said "invitee" I meant to say "attendee."
