Not 'big' by some standards, but simple entities suffices for a few hundred 
Each (your example) is validated at section level,
then a separate 'book' element pulls all the sections into a blank framework
with the entities resolved from either dummies or the actual material for 
   Dup id values edited at source prior to integration.

Unsure why that hadn't been considered... or did I miss something.
