when you say "many serial numbers" it sounds like individual licenses. If that is the case you won't be able to repackage it.

As Owen said deploying with "single" license in a corporate environment is a bad thing.

That said;
As you're using WPS, why not use InstallTailor to record options during UI and let it generate the transform your you.
If you are able to imput the license info during UI InstallTailor should be able to catch the property(ies) with the license code.

Another way is to use DebugView for a more "cleaning" transform.
For more info about this have a look at my "Monitor MSI installation actions in real time" comment at http://juice.altiris.com/article/1358/troubleshooting-wise-packages-with-windows-installer-log-files

If you find out the property holding the license and you got single licenses you could author a custom action that would set the license info bound to the user/computer.
John made a nice way of doing this by using an xml file, have a look at his blog. You can find the "Using Custom XML Based transforms" at http://johnmcfadyen.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!9DD01136FC094724!197.entry

if its an MSI there is no CA you need to use. Just add the properties to the transform job done.
