It would allow you to choose specific pages you knew you were going to work on that day, use them with your iPad, and then sync them back to the main document.
Either that, or work with one of the smaller/simpler text editing programs, like write room, and see if they will build in some functionality that lets you communicate easily between the two programs.
That way, before you leave the house, you open your project, export the "Chapter 1" file only. Use that on your iPad at the library. Come back home and upload the changes. Scrivener users with iPads are going to be doing this in some way regardless, so maybe there's a way to build it in.

Did I mention I also have a Shuffle?

The touch screen feels ripe for an index card/outlining application. Virtual corkboard, virtual cards. Go.

To those asking: I’m not going to sue Apple. They used the best available metaphor to represent “books,” which was Delicious Library’s.
