To specify the participation role for the calendar user specified by the property.

This parameter can be specified on properties with a CAL-ADDRESS value type. The parameter specifies the participation role for the calendar user specified by the property in the group schedule calendar component. If not specified on a property that allows this parameter, the default value is REQ-PARTICIPANT. Applications MUST treat x-name and iana-token values they don't recognize the same way as they would the REQ-PARTICIPANT value.
