With the trunk branch of outshine.el (and outshine and navi-mode
properly installed, and outline-minor-mode activated) you can just do:

,----[ C-h f outshine-latex-insert-headers-in-buffer RET ]
| outshine-latex-insert-headers-in-buffer is an interactive Lisp
| function in `outshine.el'.
| 
| (outshine-latex-insert-headers-in-buffer &optional BUF-OR-NAME
| NO-PREAMBLE-P)
| 
| Insert outshine-headers for all sections in latex-mode buffer.
| Use current-buffer, unless BUF-OR-NAME is given. Add a 1st-level
| preamble header unless NO-PREAMBLE-P is non-nil.
`----

to automatically insert meaningful outshine headers for all latex
sections in current buffer, call navi-mode and type e.g. '3' or '4'
(show headers up to level 3 or 4), and then kill and yank the subtrees
with 'k' and 'y'.
