Oh, sure, since easypose does this for pdf output it will do for the sla 
file to be edited this way

crop and crease marks are very small, something like 3mm 0.2pt 
thickness, this is the settings easypose uses. for the plate there is 
always the space for control marks, like color bars, so, I think it will 
be no problem...

hm... after exporting the cover to pdf, you can create your 2, 4, n up 
in Easypose ^_^v

Yes, it is aimed to create a .sla (or svg, I'm deciding) file to be 
edited on Scribus, (or inkscape)  since is has all the tools for DTP. 
EasyPose is just acting as a scripting tool for scribus to use the cover

Ah, I was thinking just that right now! Yesterday I learned how to make 
a Hard Cover by hand, it was great to understand what an automated 
layout should do...

The good thing is, we start from the sizes of the internal pages, 
determinate the number of pages the publication has, and, with 
informations  like paper thickness, we are able to calculate the cover, 
depending the options it has, that's the Idea of the auto-cover.

But I have a doubt, is it used Diecutting for cover creation? Cause 
easypose could export DXF, PS or CFF2 for Diemaking, wich I have more 
experience than DTP ^_^
