What about (in ly2dvi -h, for example):

  -t,--titles           provide full headers for each (\score{}) section
     --no-titles        omit headers from each section
  -n,--new-pages={1,...} clear a new page for each (listed) section
  -1,--reset-pages={1,...} reset a new page (number=1) for each (listed) section
  -/,--separate={1,...} separate .dvi file for each (listed) section

These options should include all the interesting cases of orchestral music
you mentioned. One should note that lists are optional. Besides, I think
it is wise to start always a separate .dvi file with page number 1.

In order to get strange page numbers, one should use lilypond-book,
definitely. So far, I have needed .midi files while composing .ly files.
