I actually don't have much of an idea how bookparts are supposed to work
and what differentiates them from books reliably and whether books may
be used as bookparts and vice versa and what that means.

The C++ data structures are the same.  books always have a paper block,
but if you add a paper block to a bookpart it will take it well enough
and I don't know how to distinguish them from books then.
