One quick amplification regarding your first point: If you make a multi-flow file to hold multiple text inset source chunks, you still have the ability to insert them in any order and in any combination in any container document. Remember that when you do a text inset, you start with File > Import > File to identify the source file, but are then presented with the Import Text Flow by Reference dialog where you identify the single, specific flow in the file that you want to import. It can be the first one, the last one, or any in-between. If you want more than one flow from that file, you have to do more than one import operation just as if each flow were a separate file.
What's important in this mode of operation is to give the flows useful, descriptive names (rather than the default A, B, etc.) that uniquely identify each chunk. The challenge is to keep the names short since the list box in the Import Flow... dialog only displays about 20 characters and is non-scrolling and not resizable. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Thanks to all who contributed to this one. Replies and clarifications in no particular order: (1) The text inset source files are one topic per file so topics can be reused in any order. (2) I have used the separate book file containing text inset files before but this time there are a lot of text insets -- but this is the likely way to go. (3) Looks like a FrameScript that scans a book, detects all text insets, and creates a new book of text insets could be the way to go. Now to find the time.
