We consider a class of nonautonomous delay-differential equations in which the time-varying coefficients have an oscillatory character, with zero mean value, and whose frequency approaches
 $+\infty$
as
 $t\to\pm\infty$
. Typical simple examples are
 $x'(t) = \sin (t^q)x(t-1) \qquad\text{and}\qquad x'(t) = e^{it^q}x(t-1), \;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;{(*)}$
where
 $q\ge 2$
is an integer. Under various conditions, we show the existence of a unique solution with any prescribed finite limit
 $\lim\limits_{t\to-\infty}x(t) = x_-$
at
 $-\infty$
. We also show, under appropriate conditions, that any solution of an initial value problem has a finite limit
 $\lim\limits_{t\to+\infty}x(t) = x_+$
at
 $+\infty$
, and thus we establish the existence of a class of heteroclinic solutions. We term this limiting phenomenon, and thus the existence of such solutions, "asymptotic homogenization." Note that in general, proving the existence of a bounded solution of a given delay-differential equation on a semi-infinite interval
 $(-\infty,-T]$
is often highly nontrivial.
Our original interest in such solutions stems from questions concerning their smoothness. In particular, any solution
 $x: \mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{C}$
of one of the equations in
 $(*)$
with limits
 $x_\pm$
at
 $\pm\infty$
is
 $C^\infty$
, but it is unknown if such solutions are analytic. Nevertheless, one does know that any such solution of the second equation in
 $(*)$
can be extended to the lower half plane
 $\{z\in \mathbb{C}\:|\: \mathop{{{\rm{Im}}}} z<0\}$
as an analytic function.
