Good questions. Rather than address each question separately, I'll briefly elaborate on my idea and see if it helps address the issues you brought up. The group of series could have an assigned 'Primary' checkbox. You'd simply check the series that trumps the others. The primary entry could be used for Save to Disk, NextInSeries Indexing, etc. Editing multiple books in a series could affect the primary entry. All other entries could be considered the 'shortcut/ghost' entries I am suggesting.
By the way, I reposted this suggestion in a new thread as it seemed a bit off topic from where this thread was moving. Maybe we could move the discussion there instead. You should be able to find a link in my profile.
