1000% daily value???

Ok, these multivitamins I've got here... Vitamin C: 1,000% recommended daily value. Riboflavin: 941% Recommended Daily Value. Thiamin: 800% Recommended Daily Value. Those are only the top three, there are several others that this contains several times the recommended daily value. Why? Wouldn't this cause an imbalance of vitamins and minerals? Or is the Recommended Daily Value only a minimum, not a specific amount you should take? Or is the excess to hedge bets against stuff getting wasted via digestion?
