I think that do you meant a repository setting like this:
top level files (entities, book's index, Makefiles, etc..)
temp-system (with boot files included)
introduction (chapter01 from LFS with multi-arch support)
final-preps (chapter04 from LFS with multi-arch support)
temp-system (chapter05 from LFS with multi-arch support)

Yes, you can create all the *-index.xml files that you want rearrangin the
included files in any way (except placing duplicated ones, of course ;-))

Appart the repository reestructuration, maybe some changes in the Makefile.

I say yes also, but only if the multi-archs books replace the current LFS
