There is no way to prevent a number from being allocated to each
chapter or section.  It might be possible to prevent it from
being printed in the title etc., by a rather complicated trick
involving the @SectionFormat option (or similar options for
other large-scale structure symbols) in the setup file.  But
before we get into that, what is it that you are trying to
achieve by using such a feature?  Perhaps there is another way
to get what you need.  For example, if your aim is to get an
unnumbered chapter called Preface, there is a @Preface symbol
for that.  Or if your aim is to have all sections or chapters
displayed without numbers, then there is a much simpler change
you can make to the @SectionFormat (etc.) setup file option.

No, just this mailing list.
