I second that.

Remember we are designing a *user* interface, not a business analysts' 

A meeting that occurs on the third Wednesday of the month is a regular 
monthly meeting. Indeed most monthly events are scheduled by the day of 
the week rather than the day of the month. It would be confusing to the 
user to call one type of event "monthly" and the other something else.
