OK, I see now.  I built this based on the behavior of google-weather-el,
which includes a function for inclusion in agendas.

I think it's a feature; in my (real-world) case, my function runs based
on the value of the local variable `date' (apparently set when the
agenda is built) and provides a correspondingly different result for
every day's agenda.  That is legitimately useful.  Google-weather-el
works the same way.  See:

(info "(org)Weekly/daily agenda")

...for examples of org-mode itself using this (e.g., for
org-calendar-holiday, org-bbdb-anniversary, etc.).
