I have no particular recommendation as such, other than to scan every
page and to keep them all together: if they started life as one folder
then I'd suggest that they should continue that way.
If you do that and a "better organisation" or "standard" appears later,
it should be easy enough to post-process your PDF to arrange the pages
to meet that new standard.

pdftk works well for managing pages and PDFs. I've used pdfshuffler too,
when I want a "visual" tool.
