That's a very good way to put it, though some events could have natural segways.
An MC who just finished determining the tutoring of (it should be both siblings) should be able to at the same time challenge the King to a tennis match and not have it occupy more time, since after all, they're already there.
Or in the case of visiting the duke, one should naturally Segway in this choice of informing Cromwell or the Duke, instead of having to spend additional time at the "trial" option.
In the case of the poets, one should be able to find the time to quickly sponsor one, possibly challenge one to a quick duel, then sit in on an intellectual discussion, and end the evening with the Ambassador's Dinner, which should naturally lead to the diplomatic mission.
It's those types of things which I think should lead to either the elimination of choice limits (as long as stars allow), or a natural Segway between the more I or ones, and then have the larger ones be constrained under a quantity limit.
