It's a clunky solution predicated by your keeping the book in one
file, but just set up different master pages. The only difference
between master pages or sets of master pages would be the differing Xs
hard-coded into the footers: one set for Section 1, one set for
Section 2, etc.

Apply those masters to the appropriate selections of pages and you're done.


P.S. Why do you think it has to be in a single file?
