Thanks to Richard Williams for his thoughts.  The vonHippel 2007 reference linked in his reply is particularly helpful and completely explains the theory underlying my intuitions: the observations with missing dependent variable contain no information about the regression coefficients, and, in fact, are in most situations best omitted from the MI analysis.

Well, I was hoping I was wrong, because it might have been an easy way to save our project.  Instead, we'll have to do some hard work figuring out something else.
