 This works, but not for a day or week view.  

 On the positive side, while I was trying to figure out how to do
 this, I've started to rethink how I'm using the different date

 I was originally trying to overload the meaning of SCHEDULED.  Making
 a TODO item that starts in the future and then will continue showing
 up until done (as in the manual) for "WAITING" items, but also as a
 TODO item that starts in the future, but then should become a normal
 TODO item for everything not a "WAITING" item.
 I think a better approach to the second one is going to be using a
 property like ACTIVEON, like so:

  :ACTIVEON:       <2008-10-01 Wed>

 I'm still at the idea stage here, but think it could work with a hook
 similar to org-expiry.el or org-depend.el

 Totally not important.  I was just trying to clean up some of my
 agenda functions and feared I was missing something basic.
