So you're kind of getting what you want, it's just that you want the
current title to be left aligned/bold like a section?

Can you explain what you mean by "don't want subsections to be
promoted to sections"?  As in with =#+options: num:t=, with:

#+begin_src org
* first
** second (export this and below)
*** third

You would get:

#+begin_src export
1.1 second
1.1.1 third

As in, does absolute position matter, or are you okay with:

#+begin_src export
1 second
1.1 third

Not sure how to do what you want, but just thinking that more details
might help others chime in about how to get what you want...
