 I'd say that "one" might be a nominalizing particle, thus, neither a
 noun nor a pronoun. >>

Yeah, that must be it, and I think I was wrong again with my post above :=20
"one" is not an integrated role fusing with an adjective or a verb to make=20
them a noun.
"-er" in "sing-er" and "-o-" in "s-o-ng" are integrated but "(singing) one"=20
or "(sung) one" aren't obviously. Especially because "singing" and "sung"=20
still refer to a process when combined with "one", whereas "singer" and=20
"song" are rather outside of process (that's why they are "nouns").
