Thank you for the idea, Mark. Unfortunately, it's a no-go.
When you share a file from a derived read-only view which is based on a certain promotion state, the share is accomplished by setting the behavior of the file, in the new location, to the specific date that the promotion state refers to. [I suppose this is necessary because labels are only valid within the scope of the view in which they are created.]
In any case, at this point, the file is frozen at that point in time. Future changes of the file and promotion state in the original view will affect the derived read-only view, but will not affect the shared file, which is frozen in time.
