My internal site using AD authentication but has the role provider added to the web.config to allow the people picker resolve the relevant groups. I can then manage a documents item level permission and add or remove specific roles.

My external site uses FBA authentication with the same role provider details added in the web.config.

So by my reckoning I should be able to manage a documents item level permissions in the internal site – break inheritance, add or remove specific roles. Then I can perform a content deployment (full or incremental) and see these newly configured permission for that document copied across to the external site...

When you specify your deployment paths and such, there is an option to include permissions.
