I can think of two solutions:

1)  Create two condition tags (e.g., Draft, Publish) and duplicate every 
link, once for each style; tag with the appropriate condition and 
show/hide appropriately before sending to WWPP or Distiller.

2)  Publish to WWPP and then use
Acrobat File > Create PDF > From Multiple Files
                        or > From Web Page
depending on WWPP's output.

(Neither is very appealing in terms of workload/maintenance or 
usability.  Can't you just educate your reviewers??)
