If 12am/00:00 is considered the start of the day, then the rule
holds -- switching 12am to 12pm makes the event later that same day,
at noon.

I like this idea (allowing times at 24:00 and beyond).  The user can
place things where they want: at the start or end of the day.  As a
bonus, if you work the night shift, you'll be able to see your daily
agenda all under one date at the start of your shift.
