That is what I am doing now as my “non-visual” version. It actually works pretty well. My thought is to create something like one of the online Kanban boards for more visual impact.

I didn't elaborate before since the question was about TODO states, but I have 4 Kanban-named views in my ~org-agenda-custom-commands~; one view each for BACKLOG, TODO, and DOING so that I can look at each stage individually and a fourth with all three of those blocks as you suggest to get them all at once.

With Org babel, and my org-mode configuration being a ~.org~ file, I also manage to achieve DRY. My three individual agenda blocks are defined once, and the complete view just references them with <<>> noweb syntax.

Did I mention how awesome Org mode is ? I should have :)
