I think this is a good idea, and I also see not problems with 
maintaining this. We currently have an editable version of the formula 
spec which contains the examples and we remove them using XSLT when we 
publish documents. That's one option.

For the main specification we currently have a version that does not 
contain cross references but we add them automatically based on 
information from the schema. We don't do that once, but dynamically for 
every draft. So keeping the examples separate and inserting them then a 
non-normative version if requested should work as well.

ODF + RNG + XSLT is powerful enough to do all that.
