Photoshop: Split the canvas size

A feature I'd like to see in Photoshop. Could work in Illustrator as well.

When changing the canvas size, I'd love to be able to 'split' the page. So instead of adding say .25 to the outside edges (or left,right, top bottom), .25 could be added to the centre of the canvas. The existing layered artwork would be split in two. We produce a lot of childrens book titles whereby depending on an adjusted page count, or stock variance, spines often need to be made thicker, or thinner. If I could split the page, then I can much more easily adjust the spine artwork, rather than moving the art on the front and back covers.

...and/or split the canvas size at an assigned point. i.e. 2" from the left hand edge.
