Yabbut, what you're all missiing is that the client wants to
do it with FrameMaker and RoboHelp, and whether you agree
with the workflow and the tools or not, it sounds as if the
client's mind is made up.

You're a contractor; you charge by the hour. It is highly
unlikely that the client will pay you to set up a more
efficient workflow, but you will, of course, get paid for
combing thru the help to discover the changes that need to
be made to the FrameMaker document.

Deal with it and count your money when you're done! ;-)
