Just to note that the git HEAD mhshow does render the text/calendar part.

Can exmh somehow handle the output of the latest nmh (mhshow)?

It also supports accept/decline/tentative replies to iCalendar

No.  It wouldn't be difficult.  But per another of kre's observations,
the structure isn't necessarily incorrect.  In fact, the ones I
receive are OK:  all three parts have the same content but in varying
forms, in the proper order.
