I think this highlights the issue in regard to no-brainer sorts of 
"requirements" by printers. As Louis has pointed out many times, 
discussing your print job with a _knowledgeable_ commercial printer will 
result in avoidance of bad outcomes, plus have the added bonus of 
teaching you something about the process of transferring a PDF to print 
on a particular kind of paper with particular inks.
