The proper way to mutate *any* calendar data is always to use CalDAV, and never to operate on the back-end data directly. Any reasonable CalDAV client should be able to delete a calendar collection. If not, you could use an admin tool such as CalDAVClientLibrary to perform the delete.

Operating on the back-end data directly usually means your changes are invisible to clients, and may cause errors. Using CalDAV allows the appropriate change notifications to bubble up, so things work as expected.
