Not really. IF they use the RFC's for calendar over e-mail (RFC 2445, written by MS, no less; and RFC 3283), you just have something like procmail properly distribute messages to the calendars, and have calendar program use mail to send notices. I've played around with doing this with mh and message-harmonized calendaring (http://packages.debian.org/unstable/misc/mhc)

Interoperability depends on standard interfaces. Integration depends on dependencies. Both allow two systems to work together. The former allows ANY two programs to work together, and be upgradible separately (and ensures bugs in one don't cause bugs in the other). The latter creates "dependency hell" and "embrace and extend."
