> Is my understanding correct, that this would destroy the revision history of the moved parts?
Yes, I throw away all meta data each revision cycle - but the "master source" content files are kept in a real version control system anyway, so the DW history's redundant once the "canonical" changes have been merged and committed to the VCS.
I've asked for ways to just turn off DW's history feature, but no reply.
> Would you consider making your scripts part of a server-side toolbox?
I don't have a defined package of scripts, just various tools used to output/edit/transform plain text files, depending on where they're coming from and what needs doing to them.
My point is just that you can work with the DW's wiki data as you would any dirtree of plaintext files.

In my case the users are just proposing edits to existing docs or adding new ones, a central group of content "editors" are responsible for the organizational aspects, but things are getting pretty constantly re-factored.
