THere is already such a setting called 'is-calendar'.

E.g. my calendar collection contains the following .calypso-collection
configuration file:

# Advertise this collection as a calendar. If this setting is absent,
# the
# collection's content is inspected for a guess.
is-calendar = True
# Advertise this collection as an address book. Behaves in analogy to
# is-calendar.
is-addressbook = False

It looks like the patch I'm using that added this support was written
by you back in 2014:

    add per-collection configuration
    this is necessary to support empty calendars/address books
with clients
    that rely on autodiscovery.
    pre-existing collections need per-coll
