Windows Phone 8 API will still not allow a full 3rd party calendar app

With Windows Phone 8 now allowing 3rd party developers to write appointments to the Calendar store it has been hoped that a full-fledged 3rd party PIM could finally be written for Windows Phone.

Unfortunately it seems that while the Windows Phone 8 API will allow developers to write appointments to the calendar store, it will not allow them to edit or delete existing ones,  which would of course leave 3rd party apps fatally crippled.
