I've formed the unverified impression that if you keen keep chunks of 
text down to just a few linked text frames, things slow down a lot less 
quickly as the number of pages increases.

With I've been up to about 60 pages. While not fast, speed was 
not a problem.

1.3.5.x is supposed to be quicker with large documents, so you may get 
away without splitting it, and I certainly wouldn't split it until you 
have to.
