So, I think the things we should limit are multi-day all-day events, not
1-day all-day events. Does that seem more reasonable? How many
multi-day events do you have at a time?

Odd. My version of iCal strictly limits the number of all-day events
displayed to 2 in month-view. What version of iCal are you using?
