Although your ink name changes when you edit the definition (it doesn't 
change here), you can call it whatever you want, I think. Try copying 
the name before you edit the definition, and then paste the name back 
over "None" after you edit the definition.

I disagree that this is proper. Changing the definition of a spot color 
is easily and commonly done in other programs.

I thought the synthetic spot color was called "None". Did you rename it

Are your CMY plates blank?
