I echo this. Currently working on a huge book file with many sections/subsections, so manually updating numbering is not an option, and the chapter/section/subsection numbers must be listed in the header as a requirement. I found a clunky workaround using hidden cross-references, but the whole thing is a tangled mess and when numbering goes off for some reason or a paragraph style is accidentally altered (many people are working on this file), it screws up the entire book file. It would be so much simpler if there was an option to include automated page numbering in the text variable options.
