If you do so, it will be quite complicated to automatically
reproduce the original situation from the contents of your
'orig'-attribute.

Why not go the other way around:

<orig reg="butterfly">butter-<pb n="23"/>fly</orig>

But why should you need to encode this? If you just write:

butter&shy;<pb n="23"/>fly

(using &shy; for the soft hyphen character) a very simple
stylesheet will be able to produce the 'butterfly' you need. If
you don't trust the software to recognize this as one word you
might perhaps add a w-element to make the situation unambiguously
clear:

<w>butter&shy;<pb n="23"/>fly</w>
