In that case I split it down and just keep a mindmap of the different moving parts so I can tell at a glance what they all are. This is also the case when you're dealing with a project thats almost a 20K foot item. For example at the mo we're completely redoing our HR processes at work, with new contracts, new staff handbook, change in holiday and sick entitlement, etc. Helluva lot of work, including lots of negotiation and referring to legal advisors. It's just easier to deal as separate projects, so I do.
RE support materials, I keep all paper materials in a single filing cabinet, active or nay. Most other people seem to keep a separation of active and expired projects.
When I first got into GTD (and even now, though less so) I did a lot of trying out different ways of doing things. You seem like you're going by the book at first, which is definitely the way to do it, but if you need to evolve your system to keep up them do so, the system is only there to support the job, not the other way round.
