That is exactly the intent; we want the EDS interfaces to be generally
usable across the desktop.  And if they have specific problems that make
them unsuitable for other apps, we want to fix them.

We are trying our best to convince everyone :-).  And if what we have
now isn't good enough, we're going to do our best to fix it.

Sorry about launching the bounties at the same time the proposal to
include Evolution in GNOME 2.6 was sent.  The thing is that until you
see specific examples of the ways the desktop user experience can be
enhanced by a single shared addressbook/calendar subsystem, it's hard to
make a case for doing that...
