Notes:

CRLF are missing in every content line. The example violates at least the very first definition of iCalendar object stated at section 4.4

icalobject = 1*("BEGIN" ":" "VCALENDAR" CRLF
icalbody
"END" ":" "VCALENDAR" CRLF)

----- Verifier Notes -----
Yes, and this was fixed in the updated document, RFC 5545. RFC 2445 has been
obsolete since 2009.

Section 4.8.7.3 says:

Conformance: This property can be specified in the "EVENT", "VTODO",
"VJOURNAL" or "VTIMEZONE" calendar components.

It should say:

Conformance: This property can be specified in the "VEVENT", "VTODO",
"VJOURNAL" or "VTIMEZONE" calendar components.

Notes:

Verifier notes:
I'm marking this "hold for document update", according to the IESG's policy on errata
handling... but note that this document has already been updated: it is obsoleted by
RFC 5545, and this version (RFC 2445) should no longer be used. (And this typo was
corrected in RFC 5545, I'm happy to say.)
