Why do you feel that you need to split them?

I've used emacs to edit large files, even binary files, directly. I'll
admit that I haven't needed to edit such large ones, so my mileage
obviously varies, but I am not aware of any inherent limit in emacs
that would prevent you from editing the whole file direcly.
