2.5.7 caldav interoperability

In our efforts to move on to 2.5 we also try to support caldav/carddav for our
employees. In our tests we tried to share the Default calendar through as many
devices/platforms as possible (not only) including Thundbird, OSX and iOS.

One problem we have is that iOS can access the Account and creates a new
Kalender on first access, but it does not use/detect the Default calendar. It
creates one with long UID name like 22xxx9EA-EFxx-4Exx-BAxx-Axxxxx3D7xxx and
gives it a localized "displayname" attribute. In english "Calendar".

Calendars added by OSX are detected as well. Only Default is missing.

OSX on the other hand detects the Default as well as the iOS "Calendar" and
can access both.

For a user it is impossible to "guess" that UID mailbox/calendar name to use
it in clients without autodetection like lightning.

Is this a know issue that iOS can't/wont detect the Default calendar? Maybe
fixed in HEAD? Or is it something we did wrong in our configuration?

Greetings, Wolfgang

PS: carddav Default addressbook on the other hand works with iOS as well.
