Google announced support for the CalDAV standard, and explained how to view a Google calendar in Apple's iCal client. There are a few glitches but it's a developer-focused release and they've solicited bug reports.

I would be very interested to know how their WebDAV logic (underlying CalDAV) plays with their Atom logic (underlying the GData API). I'm sure Google Calendar is not the only implementation to support both protocols to view and modify the same data, and there will be more.

Chandler Server is another good example (disclaimer: I'm a core developer) of this dual exposure, though the use of Atom is considerably different.
