    Default REST interface stripping off extra attributes

    Hello all,

    I have a need to import vCards to ZCS from another Web app. I also need to link the two together, so I was thinking of adding a X- attribute to store a unique ID for the link, like this :

    X-PROSPECTS:6420362

    But when I use the REST URL (POST /home/xxxxx/contacts?fmt=vcf) to send the vCard to ZCS, the attribute is lost when stored in ZCS!

    So I tried to use the UID attribute instead, so in the vCard I'm importing, the UID look like this :

    UID:6420362@prospectsweb.com

    but when I fetch it from ZCS after the importation, the UID has changed to :

    UID:73e0f6cc-9161-4f32-b634-985e8fd41d23:503

    So I can't link ZCS to the other app because of this :-/ It's almost the same problem for iCalendar files, extra attributes are stripped but at least the UID stays the same.
