While clearly sticking an entry in the calendar 7 years hence saying
"renew trademark" is better than doing nothing, I'm not convinced that
is the best solution.

I see the calendar as being useful for reminders, but not a very good
checklist of things that need to happen.  Somebody might complete a
task and forget to put a new entry on the calendar (far easier to do
than deleting an entry from the tracking list).  Maybe somebody puts
an entry on the calendar, but not far enough in advance to take
action, or maybe ownership is unclear so nobody does anything until
the last minute.  And so on...

As I see it, this list would become the go-to place if somebody (a
trustee or interested volunteer) wanted to see when our last tax
filing was, etc.

The whole goal here is KISS - a list of things that need to happen and
when they happened last and need to happen next.  If all the future
dates are still in the future, then the foundation is essentially in
compliance, and if not it is not.
