So, you want the next actions from the projects, but not the next actions from the single-action lists?

Expand all your folders, then go through and cmd-click on all of your projects in the sidebar. Save as a perspective that restores the selection and just shows next actions. You'll need to update it if you add more projects, of course. If you'd like to see these tasks in context view, after selecting the projects, click the Focus button in the toolbar, then switch to context view and make your perspective (which will also need to restore focus as well as selection).

You could also try marking your single-action lists as dropped; you won't see the actions when choosing next actions, but you can still look at them. No matter what you do there's going to be an element of clunkiness as you are trying to put non-actionable items in your database of actionable items...
