Pretty much anything is doable in xot, including all that you have mentioned. The only thing to clarify is what you mean by "proprietary dbase". Do you need the data to only persist for the session or while the LO is in progress or over multiple sessions?

If you were able to flesh out the details a bit more and maybe mockup a few screenshots then i'll be happy to assist.

So here come my (inevitable) dumb questions…. What specifically would I use to build a custom menu? JS? And…how would I ‘insert’ it to XOT?

I was planning to use the desktop xerte so I become reasonably used to working with it and inserting what I needed, but since it seems to be sidelined, I need to be sure I can ‘insert’ a menu, custom pages, and some code to read/write to a proprietary dbase in HTML5 XOT. Does that all look doable? I’m willing to put in the effort unless I’m really swimming against the current here.

A custom menu page and some global js to handle the page and state information.
Something to sense when the page is a section end and on the next "Next Page", set some state info and then redirect back to page 1/menu.
The state info can be used to hide /reveal checkmarks or what have you.
