I too think that it is slightly out of place. If we are providing today, we might as well add tomorrow and yesterday, and that sort of beats the point of the calendar widget and makes it cluttered too.
That is definitely a good idea. In essence my proposal was about facilitate the date input by surfacing likely values more. We may still want to facilitate things when that information is missing or may be wrong, but that may be less critical if it is more of an edge case.
Jut to clarify, the idea of facilitating the selection of today as a usual value does not necessarily require adding more controls as the ticket description suggests. Some possible ideas include to select the present day as the user focus on the control, or using a link as a quick action in the placeholder ("Select today or another date").
