Well, rename the things that would normally chunk to something that won't?  I think the chunking is determined in the TOC spec.  (I don't have the stuff in front of me right now, so I'm flying by instruments...)  Anyway, I bet if you removed most of the entries in that parameter (or comment them out), then you would not get chunking on those boundaries.  So after you wrap the PIs in something that will chunk, then remove the chunking you don't want????  Hey, I'm just guessing but this is how I'd try it if it was my problem.

But how would I get rid of all the unwanted chunks? I don't think I
could just strip out the xml:id tags since I believe those are used
for other purposes as well.
