As you point out, "the only good answer is to break the book into
separate chapters."

If you don't want to take an hour or so to do that, you could probably
spend a day or so kludging work-arounds to solve the problems you want
to solve. For instance, you could substitute a hand-crafted numbering
system that would function kind of like the built-in chapter and page
numbering markers (one tag/marker set for arabic; one for roman).

I think it'd be easier to take the time to do it right the first time,
rather than to spend more time later to fix the problems.
