Optimization for print and optimization for the web require separate
processes for a lot of things, like callouts, for instance, in print,
should be vector-based (thinner than a point), while they obviously
cannot be, in GIF or PNG (smallest 1 pixel wide).

Conversion from RGB to CMYK and from a higher res to lower res is
relatively painless if automated in PS, but otherwise it can be a pain
in the ass.

So in short, I won't bother for now with eps or CMYK tif files,
particularly because the text and content of the guide doesn't seem
solid yet.
