Default Calendar Sync by Category? (Using two computers)

I need to sync two different calendars (i.e., from two different computers) to my smartphone. I just don't want the calendars to be combined on the individual computers the second time I sync. Any suggestions on how to do this would be appreciated.

Here's my set up:
- Windows Mobile 6.1 on a Samsung SCH-i760
- Using the built-in calendar application

* I sync my business events over-the-air from Oracle Calendar using SyncML.
* I sync personal events (birthdays, doctor appts, etc.) from my Macintosh using MissingSync (which WILL allow me to sync only certain calendars/categories of events).

Both of these sync processes work fine individually, but I don't want all of my personal events to be "back-washed" into my work calendar and vice versa.

If I could use MissingSync on both calendars, everything would be fine -- it allows me to selectively sync specific categories. (Unfortunately, Oracle Calendar does not 'play nice' with MissingSync.)

Right now, the only option is to set SyncML to do a one-way sync (calendar => phone only). However, this means that when an event is canceled (or changed) on Oracle Calendar, it's never removed from my phone calendar!

I can't even do a real update of the phone without completely wiping out the calendar data and resyncing from both computers.

Any suggestions on how to do this more effectively would be appreciated.

This is something that would need so called "client side filtering". We are developing this feature (actually our SyncML engine supports it internally already), but I can't say when it'll be available in the Windows Mobile clients yet.
