They do, yes. Very interesting idea.

I could envision a simple solution where you export your tasks via an
dynamic block and insert that into the text area of the simple kanban
board. But that is a one way solution and fails if people start dragging
the tasks around. How does this information get back into the org file?

Maybe something simpler that is not editable as a view of the tasks and
their state, i.e. a simple static html kanban board. This could be done
again with some hacking based on a dynamic block and exporting this as
csv or you could hack up some elisp creating the html based on the
mapping API[1].

Could you not just use the the global TODO list[2] and sort the tasks by
TODO state?
