I was under the impression that  --dd-grab-all was actually lighter on TMS/Schedule Direct thanthe default behavior of getting data for today and +13 so I wouldn't think that your assumption that using --refresh-today at the same time every day "doesn't have the effect of hammering the Schedules Direct system" is correct.
