Not quite correct. It is true that each page of a multi-page PDF must be 
imported separately, but the original file does not have to be broken into 
single-page PDF files to do this. If you tell FrameMaker to import a PDF that 
has multiple pages, you are presented with a dialog that displays a miniature 
of the selected page of the PDF and provides you with both a number box and a 
slider bar for you to use to select the particular page you want to import. 

And I have to believe that one can programmatically step through the pages in 
an arbitray multi-page PDF via FrameScript or the FDK (although I have never 
looked into this in the slightest).
