Sounds great to me!

Yep, shouldn't be too hard to add, I expect.

I'm not aware of any work so far to that end, but have a feeling you
could reuse http://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack-infra/yaml2ical
and make sure the schedule is maintained in a compatible YAML
layout. You might need to write/tweak a Sphinx extension to
transform it into RST so it can be embedded into the rendered
version of the schedule, but if so you can get inspiration from
which does very similar things.
