This is more or less the same process I do. Its annoying but it works and that's important! Its unfortunate there isn't a way to send a "bundle" to amazon instead of a single file.

To get it working what I do I send the book as normal, then on my PW/iPhone/iPad, I have the book, with last page read syncing working fine.
I then plug in my PW via USB, and use Mobi Meta Editor to check the ASIN that Calibre assigned it when I emailed it. I then drag the .azw from the PW documents folder into Calibre, and use your plugin to generate the XRay .asc file. I then put this in the .sdr folder, and XRay works fine on the PW, and Last Page Read Sync still works across my 3 devices.
I can't help thinking there must be an easier way!
Also, I noticed the following thing when looking at the XRay file, specifically when I choose "Wikipedia Info":
Note the weird:
Also, wouldn't it be possible to the Shelfari and/or Wikipedia lookup automatically, based on the book title/ISBN/etc in Calibre?
