Sorry that should be

* TODO Meeting
  DEADLINE: <%%(diary-float t 2 1) 13:00>--<%%(diary-float t 2 1) 15:00 +1m -3d>

I was just messing with the times to see if I get a reminder now or not
if the meeting is pending.

You need to use -3d not +3d to state you want a warning 3 days _before_
the due date in the agenda.  But it looks like the early warning days
feature only works for standard deadline dates


* TODO Meeting
  DEADLINE: <2009-06-27 Sat -3d>

so I don't think your 3 day warning will work with the diary-float entry.
