I would argue that Anniversary should include duration (one day in most
cases?) And also that your third case is really the same as the first.
In other words, New Year's Day is just an anniversary that happens on 1
Jan every year. Multi-day events (like IETF60) would have a start date,
end date, and duration of 5 days. By specifying time, you imply that the
event is not all-day.
I'm not convinced that everyone represents these the same way, but maybe
this is a case where we simply need to communicate the method more
clearly, show better examples, etc. And simply clarify the text of the
Is this reasonable?

They exist as anniversary, DTSTART/DTEND with time zone and
DTSTART/DTEND wo/time zone.
All three have distinct differences:
All day - never shows up as opaque (Birthday)
Has DTSTART with VALUE=DATE and does not include DTEND
I do not think that we can eliminate this one.
DTSTART/DTEND with TZ:
All day in specific time zone. An event that consumes
relative to UTC that just happens to exactly overlap one
day in a specific time zone.
This one can not be eliminated as it is really just any
kind of VEVENT that just
happens to span 24 hours.
DTSTART/DTEND with out TZ
All day in viewers local time. (New Years day is local
I do not think we can eliminate this one.
So what is the conflict or addition?
