I would like to export to LaTeX from EMACS's Org mode but with indefinitely many levels. Is this possible?

By default there are only 5 levels

'("article" "\\documentclass[11pt]{article}"
 ("\\section{%s}" . "\\section*{%s}")
 ("\\subsection{%s}" . "\\subsection*{%s}")
 ("\\subsubsection{%s}" . "\\subsubsection*{%s}")
 ("\\paragraph{%s}" . "\\paragraph*{%s}")
 ("\\subparagraph{%s}" . "\\subparagraph*{%s}"))

It would also be nice to dispense with differentiated formatting in headings. Ideally, I would like all level headings to have the normal font size and be formatted like this:

3.141 Heading

Perhaps normal sectioning commands can be avoided altogether.

Actually the article class has six levels --- you forgot \part. The memoir class provides eight levels: \book, \part, \chapter, \section and so on. I think that, in general seven levels are enough, from \part to \subsubparagraph but \part is not often needed.

Again, I don't think that it is a good idea to have all the division headings use the same font and size, then the only differentiation is the numbering scheme rather than numbering and visual display.
