So, with chapter numbering, you wouldn't have to reprint the entire
book, just the affected chapters? Makes sense in that situation.

In my situation, a revised copy of the entire book is just sent out at
regular intervals--never individual chapters. So sequential pagination
throughout the book seems to make more sense...

Ditto for me! =)
