The building scheduler can create an "event" by placing a blocked restriction (just like he/she can now). And no one else can edit that calendar except for a building scheduler, the "event" won't synce and the only way others can see that restriction is by viewing the location. (All of that just like now.)
The feature that allows building schedulers to create events on a building calendar doesn't work right now, so I can't verify the following. But if I understand it correctly, it is indeed functionally different, because it truly is an event. You put "event" in quotations marks, supposing it is still a restriction. But it's really an event, which is quite different. No other building scheduler can create an event on top of it (but if it were a blocked restriction, any building scheduler would be able to create an event on top of it).
However, your other points are sound. The fact that no one can subscribe to that special building calendar means that it can't sync and is not visible except by viewing the location. So it's a fairly minor upgrade in capability.
