i seem to recall that there was an instance where an item without a TODO
keyword could be treated as if it was an unDONE item but i can't seem to
find it anymore.

i understand what you're saying.  imho, for those who use outlines
solely for the purposes of defining the projects and tasks treating an
item without TODO as if it was an unDONE one if configured with a
variable and at least for the purposes of appearing in a global TODO
list makes sense.

i'll look into how i can pull together such items/tasks with a search
perhaps using FILETAGS.
