I can't help with the meat of your question (and will be interested to 
see the discussion) but on the subject of PDF editing do you already 
have Acrobat?  If not, be aware that it's criminally expensive (over 
UKP500 where I live).

There's a java package called "multivalent" which will extract and 
recombine pages from PDF and it's free.  There may be others too.
