I believe this change was made to fix the case of mixed numbered and unnumbered headings in the TOC.

Please see the other thread[1] where I suggest supporting the "case 3" where we want TOC where all headings are numbered i.e. the case of num:nil. 

This would address my main concern and make it usable, yes.

It is another question if the association of unnumbered and not toc-listed is a useful one in general.  The cleanest would be to have properties like NO_TOC_LISTING and NOT_NUMBERED or so to allow local control.  Conflating it with the global switches I find a bit confusing.

Mine is the same use case and the num:nil case covers that. 

 I have to agree with Carsten. I use unnumbered table of contents all the time in web pages. Almost all of my Org files that generate web pages have the following:

#+options: num:nil toc:t

@Scott Please see that other thread[1]. I have this exact use case. And if the case 3 discussed in that thread is supported all should be good.
