Adding MPS Atlas capabilities, like the ability to create multiple maps with one geographic extent, to Data Driven Pages

    I have used the MPS Atlas tool for years creating multiple maps (100's at a time) using one geographic extent, like the United States, but showing different data (like population, income, language preferences, country of origin) on each map.  I had the ability to create my map and place all the elements where they need to go, and then 'unlink' the maps so I could turn on/off the different features I would like to show, with all of the maps in one mxd.  Data Driven Pages doesn't allow for this capability.  To create the maps that I want to, using Data Driven Pages, I'll have to create hundreds of mxds, which is time/space consuming.
