Perhaps, but I’d like to understand what you have in mind in more detail.

I don’t know… perhaps you can explain more.

To me, in this discussion, the source documents for a web site form a single set.
It may not be obvious from how I express myself, but I was trying to use my antora-pdf experiment to give an example of one system invocation (telling antora-pdf to build the site, i.e. operate on one source set of documents) that both creates web pages in more or less 1-1 correspondence to source documents (e.g, partials and other sorts  of inclusions may distort this 1-1 slightly) _and_ produce some large pdfs that likely correspond to an Antora component-version.

I’m not sure we’re understanding each  other, since I think that our words are nearly the same but the conclusions might be opposite :-).  If you can point out anywhere I’m being unclear (my specialty ;-) that would be great.
