Shane, the important dimensions of the Silk Route - the actual seat tube length and the equivalent top tube length are published in this table on the Sabbath site. I would suggest that your wife will almost certainly need the XS frame.
And to keep the bike even lighter the September frame would also be worth considering. The main difference would be the tyre sizes the frames can accommodate.
Finally, since you plan to use an LX crankset which uses a Hollowtech bottom bracket, it will come supplied with three spacers, and the chain line is easily adjusted by the arrangement of the spacers under the bearing cups. A bias toward the more frequently used middle and inner chain rings is actually a good thing, and it is in fact how I've set up the chain line on my Sabbath.
BTW, I've had my radar out for wheels, and have found these quality 36 spoke Handspun wheels with LX hubs, Dyad rims and DT Champion spokes on eBay at very good prices. I'm going to buy a set to put on my Sabbath when it's in light touring configuration.
