You are living dangerously.  One good piece of malware gets into that 
file and you've lost all of your work.  Since I have a background in 
structured programming if I inherited that file, I'd separate it into 
pieces that could be logically justified and back up each file in a 
version control system before doing any additional work then use the 
back up system to update files in that back up hierarchy.  You can make 
a file with #+INCLUDE directives in it to attach all of those smaller 
files together for export purposes and the order of the includes 
determines the order the smaller files get exported.  The people that 
wrote org-mode were seriously smart when they put this feature in.  
Probably it is something you can read about in the limitations section 
of the org-mode manual too.
