There is a difference between "your mail app doesn't have a calendar"

I use Google Calendar Tab, which must be 100 lines of code, and does
most of what one wants from calendar integration. A few more hundred
lines of code and it would do everything.

NNTP is certainly not part of an MVP. And I say that as a keen NNTP user.
