As a consultant, my best advice to your client would be to find a new
consultant.

Can't say, but I'm sure you'll find them. I once did the layout and prepress
for a short work of non-fiction in PM. It went okay, but there was no index
or anything special to deal with. As I recall, PM 6.5 only allows for two
master pages (R & L)... bummer.
