Many thanks for this estimate.

Just so I get it completely, what does "resp." mean?

Do you mean that 3 or more pages could be printed side by side as we expect
in 3-fold and 4-fold?

Yes, this is expected. No bleed where pages meet.

Does that mean that in your view the "spread" option has to be done after
the PDF embedding is finished? Or can they be done separately and combined

At first glance, I believe that taking care of the PDF is already something
and we can leave the Postscript file aside.
