Uhh, I have not tried to interoperate but Apple iCal uses .ics files  
when publishing or sending invites.  Those seem to be the same as  
your RFC 2445 spec iCAL.  Your linuxmafia link below even shows this...

Now, palm may synch directly to the Apple iCal data and not to an ics  
file, I don't know, so in that way you would be right.  But Apple  
iCal seems to use the "standard" iCAL format for communications.
