In particular the fact that you see it for all other days except today
makes absolutely no sense, right?

This is slightly beyond my pay grade, but I hope a nil
'org-agenda-prefer-last-repeat' would also display all repeats for
_future_ days.

I assume quite a few people use reoccurring entries to mark regular
meetings, short tasks etc. It is imperative that they also see how the
meeting affect the schedules of future days in their agenda.

My personal opinion is that _any entry with a timestamp_ should be
repeated as far into the future as possible, regardless of whether it is
a TODO or some other type. A timestamp indicates that this entry very
likely needs to be taken into account when scheduling future
events. Thus seeing the repetition in the agenda in the future may be

Does this make sense?
