If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

Unless otherwise specified, the term MAY implies that the product does not follow the prescription.

<1> Section  The Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 implementation of the protocol server ignores the utcDateTimeOrganizerCriticalChange element and uses only utcDateTimeAttendeeCriticalChange.

<2> Section  In the 2007 Microsoft Office system client implementation, this value is set to true when the address book is missing or has only partial details. ATTENDEE tags in iCalendar objects, as specified in [RFC2445], cannot be generated if the attendee(s’) e-mail addresses cannot be determined.
