This is done by synthesis, during subdatastore dispatching, if it failed to
find a corresponding backend, it rejects.
But we are not yet configuring the Synthesis engine like this, do we? At
the moment, whenever the "super" source is active, it always dispatches
to both "calendar" and "todo", doesn't it?

That maybe the problem... The configuration of 'super', 'calendar'
a lot, I am thinking we may come up with some kind of sharing config node to keep
them in sync.
That would be hard to implement. The config node sharing doesn't know
anything about such semantic relationships between sources.
I'd prefer to leave the config system as it is and clearly document (and
check) what is required for consistency.
