I'm glad this might be useful to you.  And you are correct in all of 

My main point is simply that, as things stand, you won't be able to trim 
the file level candidates with `org-refile-target-verify-function`, as 
they are hardcoded.  But this simple function is the sketch of a 
(hackish) way.

`org-refile-get-targets`' main purpose is to return the list of 
targets. The advice function grabs this return value, filters the list 
and returns the filtered list.  How it filters may depend, as you noted. 
I've chosen a simple criterion which meets my use case 
(`org-agenda-files`, as I specify the individual files directly there, 
and use only those as refile targets).  Indeed, it does make some 
presumptions, as you noted.  (The function does not "search 
org-agenda-files" though, it just gets the list of their names, which is 
contained in the variable).  In your case, you will certainly have to 
devise another filtering criterion.  I think the one you suggest is a 
good one too.

Best regards,
