iCalendar allows for the addition of new properties and parameters if you
look at the syntax you will see "iana-token" items used as a place holder
for future standard protocol elements). The EMAIL parameter is defined in a
draft specification which the IETF is working on:
ical4j should not be so strict as to refuse to accept new standard
properties. As you can see in that draft, there are a whole bunch of new
ones being worked on.
That said, please check to see if you have the latest version of ical4j,
because it may already support the new protocol elements, or provide a more
relaxed mode so that it does not fail when something new comes along that
it does not recognize.
