Good point. However I have submitted to my customer and indirectly to a press 
a PS document with spot color described in CMYK terms and they could handle 
it. CMYK is one thing, color separations another.  

I am not running a print shop. I submit to print shops. If the print shop 
can't handle my PS file with gimp-produced CMYK eps files then I am in 
trouble. If they can make their own separations from my material then I am OK.

So in this context, what are your thoughts?
