Just a badge icon for calendar events (no alert, nothing else)

I like the badge icon as an unobstrusive type of a notification.

The notification center I do not use at all.

I went to "Settings -> Notifications -> In the notification center: Calendar" and adjusted:

In the center: On
Show: 5 Items
Alert Style: None
Badge App Icon: On
View in Lock Screen: Off

Than I created a calendar event for today with a reminder "5 minutes before".

But no badge icon appears, when the time comes.

When I change "Alert Style" to "Banner", the banner appears as expected. But no badge.

My iOS version is 5.1.1

Do I overlook an option or is it true, that just a badge icon as notification (without any alert or alarm) for calendar events is impossible?

If so, is there any tweak/cydia app which solves the task?
Or is it possible with iOS 6?
