You might want to consider the document segmentation feature, which to my
understanding (although I've never actually used it) splits up your document
into individually managed pieces that contain no hard links to other
segments, only symbolic links, so when one segment is modified only that
segment need to be uploaded (and perhaps a symbolic links file or such.)  A
full description and instructions are in the manual, along with a working
