Will the different yet similar pages be helpful to the _users_? Splitting an
existing product into separate chunks ('fragmenting') is often worse from a
user's point-of-view as it's deceiving.

I don't think you will get penalised if the pages vary in content (word
count) and the phrases vary (flow dissimilarity). Like Bill said, be
creative and you will not need to exclude pages from the crawling cycle.
You will also lodge in more SERP's although PR 'energy' will be spread
among more pages, which will result in ranks declining.
