I think that do you meant a repository setting like this:

BOOK
 top level files (entities, book's index, Makefiles, etc..)
 editor-tools
 stylesheets
 cross-build
  introduction
  final-preps
  cross-tools
  temp-system  (with boot files included)
  temp-tools
 native-build
  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)
  chroot
 common
  prologue
  partitioning
  materials
  final-system
  bootscripts
  bootable
  the-end
  appendices

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 
book.
