At the Chicago GTD Roadmap, David said that in principle he's not against a Daily Action list, so long as the list is compiled from the various choices of the complete next action list (otherwise the integrity of that list is in doubt), with the possible exception of things that have just come up.
The other, and major proviso, is that you be willing to throw out the daily to do list, or rewrite it completely, at a moment's notice when stuff happens.
There are times when a single daily list is the best thing I can do. Its usually when I am going to be in a single place at a single time, and have a limited subset of contexts. I probably have control of my time (at least foreseeably), and as such I write down a list, prioritise it and go.
This rarely happens at work. As a senior manager in the tech game, my day moves fast, and I am covering a wide range of topics.
At home on the weekend with few "hard landscape" items ahead of me is when the single list works best. I have stuff I need to get down around the house, or at home, so the major lists of @Anywhere, @Computer and @Home are my major source of NA's. I grab some important stuff, some low hanging fruit, and get going.
But when context, time and energy are moving fast (ie. at work), the plain vanilla DA way works better.
