No, we believe in making our produce the most flexible. Assuming this  
is the case takes away that flexibility, not to mention it increases  
the complexity of the code. Also, it's not always the case that a user  
email address is query-able in the "user database".

For Horde 6, I can maybe see adding some configuration in Turba that  
allows specifying certain address books to have the freebusyurl field  
auto-generated. Most likely implemented via a hook or a new type of  
field definition in backends.php.
