Even with ALO turned off I think most Rebels - including my T4i, seem to overexpose a little.  In very bright sunlight I usually have to dial down the EC a little to get the type of exposure I'm looking for.  So basically, I have to monitor the LCD after taking pictures to make sure I'm getting what I want.  And looking at the histogram as well.  I've even noticed this with my T2i and my Xti to some degree.  when I go on Caribbean cruises etc, I will do the AEB thing with my center point at 0 or even a little negative in order to insure a good exposure.
