You are right, global revert-mode causes other issues.

Can you suggest how to have it as a local file variable when the
command that generates the file over-writes it? I have modified the
code that produces the iCal.org file so the top line now is:

# -*- coding: utf-8; auto-revert-mode: t; -*-

But emacs does not seem to be obeying the command. I've restarted
emacs, but when I modify that file with an external command, I still
get the "changed on disk" warning. If I ESC-x auto-revert-mode it
toggles to off, implying it was on. If I do that again, toggling to
on, it then works correctly.
