Yes, but that's not the point :)  The discussion was about if it  
worked when it was available and if it worked as a pure EAS protocol.

In the meantime, I had fired up my Exchange VM and tested it against  
my iPod touch. This did not show additional calendars, nor did any of  
my Android clients, nor third party clients (running on android).

HOWEVER, I also tested my wife's iPhone 5 and that *did* show the  
multiple calendars. So, this is definitely device/OS dependent. While  
this wouldn't be *too* hard to implement, since it's not supported in  
a vast majority of clients it can't be done unconditionally. We don't  
want to take the existing functionality away from people that are  
already using it. I'll be more than happy to implement this sooner,  
rather than later, if someone will step up and offer to sponsor it.
