I suggest you use the SGML backend to create multiple SGML outputs, each
one encapsulating sufficient information for each RTF file (which may
require a lot of temporary duplication), then process each one using the
RTF back end for your desired output.

If the split files do not conform to any of your DTDs, then use well-formed
XML for the intermediate files, rather than SGML.  This way you won't need
to use a DTD, yet you can still use JADE.

The intermediate files should then be destroyed so that you always work
from your single source.

This multi-step process could be made to be unattended by using scripts.
