But this is still just a link to an *Org Agenda* buffer. What I was
describing (and again, I'm not at all convinced this is a good idea) is
a headline in a regular org file that looks like this:

* [ag] Next Tasks

The [ag] cookie tells Org that this is an agenda headline. You hit "C-c
C-g" (or something) within this headline, and Org runs the query and
inserts the results as children of the headline. It's just a plain old
Org headline, and can be saved or exported as part of the file. The only
difference is that you can continue to update it (either manually or
with a hook), and that certain Org agenda keybindings are in effect
while point is in the headline (actually this part would probably be the
most difficult).

Anyhoo, just an idea.
