Acrobat script for page size

I have a Acrobat PDF with mixed page sizes:  US Letter 8.5x11, US Tabloid 17x11, ANSI D 34x22, and Arch D 36x24. My client needs all US Letter 8.5x11 and US Tabloid 17x11 pages to output at size, however requires all ANSI and Arch pages print reduced to 17x11.

If I print them one-at-a-time, I can specify output size (on print dialog, checkbox "reduce page to fit printer pargins") but this is tedious with over 9000 pages. I have Quite Imposing plug-in for modifying scale and reducing pages, however it works "globally" across the whole document. I cannot extract pages because this is for ED discovery and requires output in sequence.

Can a script be written for Acrobat that seeks out page sizes I specify, so that I can record the page numbers in batch and print all records up to that point? If I can find a way to make Acrobat recognize the page size and report to user the page #, that would speed this process up significantly.

Thank you for the help.

The solution was a PDF Portfolio plug-in, allowing us index and batch print the records in sequence.
