Yes, this is reasonable and was in fact considered at implementation
time.  It was discarded due to lack of time (when we were pushing for
gnome 2.6). The behaviour we want is that if you have a calendar
"highlighted" but not "checked" then operations such as creating a new 
event should automatically "check" the calendar so you can see what you
just added (apple's iCal does this).
