There is a trick (I found it in the titlesec doc) that allows you
to get unnumbered sections without using the \section* forms:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+OPTIONS: num:t ^:{} toc:5
#+LaTeX_HEADER: \setcounter{secnumdepth}{0}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Since num: is t, the latex exporter will produce a TOC and the \setcounter
will suppress section numbers. Unfortunately, that won't work with HTML
though: the sections will be numbered (unless some other trick can be found
there - maybe some CSS magic, although I wouldn't know where to start with
