You are quite right, of course. I was playing around with different ways
of causing the change in page geometry and forgot that pmsi uses a wrapper
rather than a switch signal.
For some applications I think a switch signal is preferable to a wrapper:
1. It is more flexible, as transitions do not need to be balanced
2. The return to the original pageset is sometimes not wanted, especially
if the first page has different headers and footers
3. If several elements in succession need to be in A3, then they can all
be included in one pageset (if they are in different pagesets blank pages
could be emitted to keep the number of sides even)
One the other hand I can see that a wrapper has other advantages, and for
many will be easier to implement.

Careful! You've used PSMI above as if it were a signal of some kind, when
it isn't ... it is a wrapper ... you'll have to mimic what I quoted from
you first above:
I hope this helps.
