Dumbledore knew Snape would off him all along, but he did it go keep up Snape's pretense of being allied with Voldemort. Dumbledore was weakened anyway, and perhaps he figured Snape could carry the emotional turmoil of his murder better than Malfoy.
Malfoy remins me of all the other bullies I ever went to school with. Cruel to a point but a complete chicken when it comes to doing the deed.
Also, let's not forget that Harry stowed the book in the Vanishing Cabinet... I believe the very one they were using for transport. So, that means that the book is still stowed somewhere in the Room of Requirement or may have even been transported over to that shop, Bourgin and Burkes.
Finally, with all the talk of the Polyjuice Potions and turning those two, Crabbe and Goyle into little girls, I wondered if Snape and Dumbledore actually exchanged places. Crazy, I know, really crazy, but I found Dumbledore's actions at the end, prior to leaving for the cave, to be weird.
