Publish the Markup Language document as FPWD, and continue to evolve it in a way that leaves all 5 courses of action open. 

ven if the result is (A), it will help understand the organization of the single document by pointing out dependencies that would otherwise be hard to see.

Personally, I believe (D) would be best if it is possible to do so without conflicts; whether that's possible is yet to be seen, and can be evaluated as we go along.
