The one thing that follow mode does not do is to reveal all contexts
of all TODO or otherwise relevant items at once. Often my entries
marked as TODO have some short text that only makes sense with its
parents, such as "call again" or "reply", so when there are many of
these items in the agenda, with follow mode I can only reveal the
context of one at a time and have to keep all of the previous ones in
short memory. Which is possible to a certain degree, but eventually
reaches the limit of my short memory capacity ...

When I put all headlines under a single top-level item such as
"Projects", the sparse-tree does almost what I want (except that it
does not aggregate multiple agenda org-files). But having a single top
level parent feels a bit wrong.
