Is there really a two-week period between your yesterdays and your
todays?  Only about 24 hours (or so--depending on times) between mine.

Yeah.  What I want is proof that TMS (or whatever provider) actually has
updates for today that weren't in the listings downloaded automatically
by mythfilldatabase yesterday when it downloaded tomorrow's data (which
is now today).

If so, then there should be discussion on the lists to determine whether
it makes sense to change mythfilldatabase to allow refreshing today,
tomorrow, and +13.  Perhaps it will make sense for some providers and
not others, but if so, mfdb should be updated to reflect this.
