As far as I know, SyncML went into oblivion just because it was very 
differently implemented in different devices. I personally consider SyncML as 
the history that is no longer promising.

Current devices usually use CalDAV / CardDAV or ActiveSync or both. For 
example, there's an application for Android - DAVDroid, which is being 
developed as opensource. That's why I want to focus on solving problems 
CalDAV and CardDAV in TDE.
