Is it? Maybe I'm misunderstanding the problem. I thought you wanted to arrange things so that:

1. Each client can see when he has a meeting scheduled with you.
2. No client can see any meetings that other clients have scheduled with you.
3. All clients can see when you're free and busy.

To address items 2 and 3, make your calendar public but restrict it to publicizing only your free/busy information. All your clients can consult this vcalendar to determine when you're free, but it won't tell any of them what you're doing when you're busy.

Item 1 is handled by your clients' OWN calendars, which will clearly report to them the meetings they've scheduled with you. They don't need to also see that information on YOUR calendar, right?
