What about the paginating transformer? I never worked with it, and I 
know it still has some issues, who might have been solved to do - but I could bug these guys to contribute patches.

Looking at that document, you need both:

  - splitting up in entities (or xincluded fragments for easy editing)
  - chunk it up in dices for easier web consumption
  - during this chunking process, have access to the overall tree of the 
document to generate tocs & x-references

I know this doesn't help you, but at least you won't find yourself alone 
now. :-)
