No, if :ORDERED: is set, then each child is a dependency of the next
child.  So if you have:

* TODO top
   ... :ORDERED: t ...
** TODO a
** TODO b
** TODO c

Only "a" will appear in your agenda view.  But if you have:

* TODO top
** TODO a
** TODO b
** TODO c

All children of "top"--that is, "a", "b" and "c"--will appear.
However, in neither case will "top" appear, because it has children
that are not yet completed.

I see, it does not, my bad.  I tried experimenting a bit on my own,
and didn't find an easy way using just agendas.

You might consider experimenting with Stuck Projects though.  If you
consider all projects to be "stuck", you could probably build an
agenda view that shows you all projects regardless of what's in them.
(I don't use stuck projects myself, so YMMV.)
