Similar to the __NOTOC__ or __NOEDITSECTION__
magic words, add a magic word __NONUMBERDHEADINGS__
which inhibts section headers to be numbered even if
a user has selected numbering.
The main page of the Wikipedia for the ripuarian languages,
is a sample of a page which should not have numbers added
to headings. Another such case would be a page which has
only numbers in its headings, such as e.g. year numbers.

NONUMBEREDHEADINGS magic word, v2

I'm not sure if I like the existing precedent of options which give editors
control over content appearance; we have markup and style sheets separate for a
reason. If a user wishes to view the entire Wikipedia in bright fuschia Comic
Sans MS, 26 points, then he or she can, through their custom CSS subpage.
If a user has indicated a preference to see their section headings numbered,
then that should be honoured.
The point with his suggestion is, that prepending numbers in front of, e.g. a series of month names, or year numbers, or even complete dates, yiels
bewildering and/or unreadable headings. There needs to be a way to remedy the dissatisfarory situation that you can only resort to go to you peferences,
change the global setting there, return to the page, have it redisplayed, and, once you're done, return to your preferences, switch the setting back on,
and likely go back once more to the again uggly page, to continue where you left off.
Shorter said, at times editors know of specific display needs for their pages which cannot be met be local CSS alone.
