can't we just keep the unknown ones (in the Kolab driver) for now?

I'm pretty sure there will be some users that will be quite angry when  
we silently remove entries.
I know at least one user that organizes large contact groups via  
distribution lists in another Kolab client.

If you want to, you can go on with the release, but this
should definitely be resolved in the next release.
