There’s plenty more. E.g. you could have generate_ical_data expect one
or several callbacks to generate those values for it, something like

        get_uri         => sub { $c->uri_for_action( ... ) },
        get_description => sub { $c->maketext( ... ) },
        # ...

Possibly you want to set these as instance data somewhere and then not
pass them explicitly in every call of that method, but that can easily
hurt testability and understandability of the code, so it depends on the
exact specifics of the case.
