This sounds like a good idea. Asuming you want a central event
interface. I don't think people are going to manage multiple places to
enter their events. It's hard enough to manage your own
calendar/upcoming-events-list already.
Anything that needs to work on such a level should be aggregating or
re-directing, Be it calendars, blogs, etc.
