Wrong. You clearly do not understand iTIP Section 3.2.2 REQUEST and the relevant subsections. Section 3.2.2 tells you how to distinguish betweeen a new invitation and an update/reschedule. That text that does is:
The "UID" and "SEQUENCE" properties are used to distinguish the various uses of the "REQUEST" method. If the "UID" property value in the "REQUEST" is not found on the recipient's calendar, then the "REQUEST" is for a new "VEVENT" calendar component. If the "UID" property value is found on the recipient's calendar, then the "REQUEST" is for a rescheduling, an update, or a reconfirm of the "VEVENT" calendar component.
And your still ignoring the part of iTIP that says to modify an event add the RECURRENCE-ID.
So if you add a RECURRENCE-ID and then it looks *exactly* like an iTIP modification there is NO way to tell if you missed something. That model will not work.
Is there ANY text in iCAL or iTIP that says there are two ways to invite someone, one that works all of the time including for single instance (without a RECURRECE-ID) that the one you keep asserting is your way? I anyone can send a REQUEST to an ATTENDEE for ANY time, why do you insist that RECURRECE-ID need be added?
