I am sorry that I don't have any solution for you.

It doesn't really matter for the installation, if it's one cab or 100 cabs, but I have also been thinking about this, and think your question is good enough to earn a +1 rating!

not sure exactly, but have a look in the media table. That should have pointers to the existing CAB files.
you might also consider a CA to copy the file from the SourceDir or some other known subfolder to the destination. Especially if it's a configuration and not a base application file.
