It seems that Org fileconversion, which does exactly this with
hidestarsfile and which I announced on the list here with four posts
spread over February, did not yet get through the noise. Even though I
asked some questions then. :-(

This is a nice idea and I just added it to fileconversion 0.6 as
nbspstarsfile. With the small generalization of fileconversion I did
some time ago to cover also markdown headlines (Peter Salazar, any
feedback?) it was very easy to extend it also to nbspstarsfile:


For the #+STARTUP keyword now nbspstarsfile is used in favor of
showstars because I think it aligns better with the already existing
hidestars, hidestarsfile and markdownstarsfile.
