Getting back to Pablo's original question, he asked about using master documents with sub-documents for each chapter. This is, in fact, the model used by many systems, from LaTeX to yWriter, as well as LO.

But, I'm wondering how necessary it really is. The purpose of the master document/subdocument system is to keep track of your document, where you may be at a given place and time. But, LO's navigator tool offers much of the same functionality without having to split your document up into many different files. With the navigator, you can jump from point to point within a single document based on headings, bookmarks, etc.

Depending on the size of the book, and your need to work on several different sections of it at the same time, just using the navigator as opposed to master documents could save yourself a lot of education time and headaches. For me, the biggest headache with master documents comes when I'm proofreading the master and find I want to make a small change. I hit a keystroke and am immediately reminded that all editing must take place within the subdocuments.
