Isn't it a feature of Org-mode that tasks can be added anywhere without
giving a thought in the agenda files, letting the agenda itself sort
them by date? Just changing the timestamp from monday to tuesday would
do the job in a normal workflow, making the agenda-file structuring by
day redundant.

Otherwise what you want would be pretty easy to implement with Orgs
basic structure editing and navigation functions, e.g.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun tj/move-entry-to-next-day ()
    "Move entry at point to next parent and tag it."
    (unless (org-on-heading-p)
    (kill-region (region-beginning) (region-end))
    (org-forward-heading-same-level 1)
     (region-beginning) (region-end) "postponed" nil))

This works with you example Org snippet, but is not tested otherwise.
