Note: When you set your cursor to the entry in the agenda, you'll
notice those breadcrumbs being displayed at the echo area (bottom
line).


When I do face similar requirements, I tend to add tags to the
headings such, that the inherited tags give me some clue about the
breadcrumbs.

This way, I sometimes end up with headings like this:

*** Task this or that      :TaskThisOrThat:

Not quite perfect for a guy that loves de-duplication (I agree) but
it works.
