Maybe so, but this is rarely an occurrence in any commercial
environment.  Even for dailies, by the time many of the spot
houses started doing that kind of work, Keykode and Aatoncode
had become the norms, although I can say I've run across some
Acmade (maybe half- dozen times in past 10 years).  Of course,
I am speaking from the NY market which may account for some
of this.

Oh by the way, some inkers are solvent-sensitive... one of my 
less-than-happy experiences was explaining to a client why he 
had edge numbers before we cleaned the film and not afterwards.
