I guess you use some XSLT or another kind of preprocessing to generate the HTML spec from some source. Maybe it's possible to leave the source as a single file while splitting the spec section-wise at the preprocessing stage?

It could even generate two versions synchronously: "all in one file" and "section-wise".
