Hi, sorry for the delay.  Some hardware failure of my machine had
troubled me for a week...

 Yes, I have noticed them.  I think a way that generating files for
 calendar and xearth from the XML file works.  How about?

 Ah, it is possible to add two or more <bit role="src"> tags in that
 case, for example.  When two periods can be merged, it can be
 calculated from them by using XLST stylesheet.

 Yes, additional elements for such purpose would be useful.
