There’s no consensus.  As you mentioned there's noexport tags.
ox-koma-letter relies heavily on tags as well.  UNNUMBERED is a

There’s no official way to use ignoreheadings.  The closes thing is the
ox-extra in contrib where Aaron curates a couple of hacks (the
ignoreheadings one by was first posted by Eric Schulte, I think when he
wrote about his thesis in Org).  That filter also uses a tag ("ignore"),
but it would be trivial to change to a property, if you prefer.

Eventually, it would be nice to add a ignoreheading property and a
"insert-just-before-heading" property (e.g. for @@latex:\clearpage@@) in
ox.  We are not there yet.
