Sounds like a good idea. I don't do many color seps, so haven't tried this.

One warning: By default Acrobat Distiller uses JPEG image compression, which
is "lossy" -- some information is lost in the compression. You'll probably
want to change the compression to LZW (the compression used for GIF files, I
believe) so that no detail is lost when you are using Acrobat for pre-press.

Choose Distiller-->Job Options to set the image compression method.
