Just a thought, Would it be possible to assign these pages a custom  
taxonomy(like a category or tags), and have your search page limit it to  
items within that taxonomy?

Another method i can think of, Which most likely will not work for you, Is  
to assign the pages to have a parent page which only acts as a stub,  
Allthough it takes a bit of effort to remove the stub from the permalink  
for the page..
