You are very close ... read Chapter 7, the example on page 204 shows the 
definition of before and after regions *inside* of simple page masters with 
different region names.

Correct, but you have two differently-name regions, one in each of the two 
different simple page masters.

Indirectly through the region names.  See bottom of page 197.

PSMI is not appropriate for this, since all you are doing is sequencing and 
not in-the-flow triggering.

PSMI only uses standard W3C XSLT ... it just happens to be two-step instead 
of one-step ... in my opinion using PSMI still adheres to W3C ... you just 
don't need it for this part of the project.

I hope this helps.
