If you add an event to the calendar, "Shopping", with an alarm e.g. 2 hours before, and you don't turn off the calendar alarm, you will get a notification of a missed event "Shopping" in the Events view. However, the event is only happening in slightly less than 2 hours, so now the Events screen shows "Shopping" as an upcoming event, AND also shows "Shopping" as a missed event. This can be confusing.

The term "Missed calendar events" could maybe be changed to "Missed calendar notifications" to get rid of this confusion.

Edit: I see there's also a string "Missed calendar alarms", but I have no idea where it's in use. This should be used instead of "Missed calendar events".
