You could add it to the Palettes path, which would have some of the properties 
you seek.  Of course, it would have some possibly undesirable properties, too, 
like remembering whether or not the notebook was open from session to session.

You could also develop a palette which dynamically populates with the notebook 
files.  Dynamic[]s don't update at the moment based upon file system events, but 
it would at least update with every restart of Mathematica.

And one could imagine other home-grown solutions, too.
