#+BIND: org-beamer-frame-default-options "[allowframebreaks]"

does work.

The problem is similar to the `fragile' option. Either we can detect the
"overflow" (and the automatically add the option only when needed), or we must
add it everywhere in order to ensure we won't have text cut.

It's a bit different from when we directly edit beamer files. We compile often
and we see the problem appearing.

Here, with Org, we would just work in Org only, and publish once at the end. A
bit more easy to be aware that some text may have pass away.

As #+BIND works, I can imagine living quite honestly the way it currently is,
but I let the others decide upon this.

Best regards,
