Just mark out the soft sections and defects ( checks, etc ) and do your layout with what is left on each board. It is no different than laying out any other board in the rough.

One thing to remember is to use a proper respirator when working with spalted woods. They can ruin ones health very quickly. Some lung infections can be debilitating for a lifetime. I use fans, vacuums and fresh air when working with spalted wood.
