If you keep your ale in the sixties during the frenzied first few days of fermentation, will it do a lot of damage to let it sit in the seventies for the rest of the fermentation? I'm guessing it's not ideal, but would have a much more minor impact than poor temp control when there is a ton of fermentation going on.

You pretty much right on the money. Obviously style type has a lot to do with ferm temps as well, diacetyl rests, etc...

Sometimes it is a good idea to raise the ferm temp slightly after the major part of the ferment is complete to keep the yeast working longer.
