What can you do? Break it up.
One client I did had a phrase he wanted used that I almost choked over. It was "Texas hill country real estate." Geezz!
Here's how I handled it on his "Tips" page... [partial copy]
When looking for apartments in the Texas Hill Country, real estate experts can offer some excellent tips to make your search easier and more productive.
Know What You Want – There are lots of options available for apartments in the Texas Hill Country. Real estate agents suggest using the same “wish list” concept for apartments as you would for house hunting. Make a list of amenities and order them by priority. When you look for an apartment, you’ll be able to easily refer to your list and check off which units offered what.
Make Use of the Internet – Yes, we’d love for you to search for your apartment using our free site. But we’re not the only ones who think using the Internet is a smart choice. To save time and money during the search stage Texas Hill Country real estate agents strongly recommend taking advantage of the Web to find properties and narrow your list.
By breaking the long keyphrase up with commas and other punctuation, it helped the copy flow better.
I'm always looking for neat tricks to make copy more appealing to both the engines and the visitors. Got tips? Share with us!

You can also do this (below). It comes from a law site. Search term is Sexual harrassment articles.
And did you know employers can be held vicariously liable for sexual harassment?”
Articles on disabilities, employee benefits, family & medical leave, hiring...
As long as the phrase stays in sequence, you can "pretty much" do anything you want.

I agree with your approach, that's exactly how I handle this same problem when faced with it. Because first and foremost, copy must sound natural, or the most "keyrich dense" content will fail.

Far too many times have I received an email saying, "HELP! I have great rankings, but my sales suck!" They are focusing only on getting ranked, but not on what happens when the visitor actually gets to the site.
Here's some info you might also find useful:

What if you ended your sentence with one (keyword). (keyword) started the next with it? Not a phrase.

Nothing is more nutritionally valuable than milk. Coke, however, tastes much better.
That's fine, too.
