Do our wishes conflict? How should we deal with this while leaving the owners the least work to permit unfettered commercial attributed

Here is how I would handle it.
On the page where the standard copyright notice belongs, put an ARR notice, with a pointer to the "Intellectual Property Rights" page.

On the page labelled "Intellectual Property Rights", there is a statement to the effect that material not listed below, is covered by the licence on the Copyright Page. Material listed on this page is only covered by the ascribed license.

Article # 1: This article was created by John Doe, and is distributed under the CC-ND 2.5 Licence.
Article # 2: This article was created John Q Public, and is distributed under the CC-ND 2.5 Licence;
Image # 1: This image was created by John Doe. It is used under the CC-NC 2.5 Licence.
Image # 2: This image was created by Jane Doe. It is used under the CC-NC 2.5 Licence.

Just make sure that all of the articles --- including the introduction, preface, and appendices are listed on the "Intellectual Property Rights" page. Also make sure that all graphics are listed on that page.

The reason for doing it this way, is that every item is clearly labelled as to what licence it is distributed under. It all announces that the licence a specific work is distributed under takes precedent over any other licences mentioned in the document.
