So far you could use CC by-nc for the howto segments and by-nc-nd for
the opening/closing segments, but that would allow the howto segments to
be distributed alone.

Not exactly, but see below.

Use by-nc, say the opening/closing segments are required for attribution
-- the 2.0 licenses allow the licensor to specify (or waive)
attribution. I don't know if such a burdensome attribution requirement
would be upheld (IANAL and have no idea about anything a court might do).
