OK, thanks for the clarification: that was one of the interpretations
that did not make much sense to me, but I was looking at it from a much
more rigid point of view, where the headlines are what give structure to
the document, so you want to preserve them at all costs; I wasn't
thinking about different meanings that they might have for different
people.

However, it still sounds like an ill-defined problem to me: in
particular, your manual algorithm would wreak havoc on an outline with
headlines at multiple levels. What is the "real" algorithm supposed to
do with something like this:

,----
| * foo
| text1
| ** foo1
| text2
| * bar                  :omit-this-header:
| text3
| **bar2                 :omit-this-header:
| text4
| ***bar3
| text5
`----

Or are we supposed to imagine headings at a single level only?

I suspect that one would be better off with two (or more) outlines: one for
the writer, one for the reader (perhaps one for each class of readers), with
some way to pick text from one outline and plug it into the other(s).
