The default navigation via iBooks 2 will render your book confusing if you attempt to abandon chapters, I think...
While I can understand your desire to freestyle the end result, you may want to work with the given structure as much as possible.
And as always, feel free to use the 'Provide iBooks Author Feedback' menu item for features you'd like added in the future, etc.
As for the numbering in the TOC...play with page numbers to see if that helps. Go to the Layout Master (View - Layout), look at pagenumber, change it to your format, open styles drawer (View ...) select the liitle arrow right fo the "footnote" style, redefine from selection. Don't forget to "apply changes" in the selected layout template.

Just fooling with this because one cannot have anchored art in a preface-type file and have the art appear in the margin in vertical orientation--a real problem for my book.
I discovered a solution that appears to be working for me. I used the Basic template because my solution did not work in the Modern template.
What I have done is to duplicate the chapter file in Layouts (land on the chapter and click the "plus" in the main bar above, I kept the name of the original file "chapter" and named the copy "appendix." I removed the numbers and chapter designations for the "appendix" by setting section numbers to "none" in the INSPECTOR. For the chapters, in the BOOK PANE in Layouts, I set the option for the chapters (clicking on the chapter number in each chapter) to "prefix and number." For the "appendix," I set the option for "prefix." At least, this is what I recall doing. All appears as I want in the TOC, and I can place art in my "appendix."
I believe this scheme would work for jgoshawk, but in this case, what jgoshawk would actually be doing (one ISBN so one book?) would be creating "parts" and "chapters"? Just an idea.
