I also think it's a good idea to save resources. I tried out the patch from Nicolas (which works great BTW, thanks!) but I'm undecided if it adds much value to Org. So if there is no interest we could just not commit the patch. If there is interest in that patch, the code could be refined to only hook into the `post-command-hook' when local numbering of narrowed parts has been chosen. Best regards, Marco
