Well, what I know is that for me, the order is crucial while working up the print. What I guess is that it doesn't matter after that.

Just the other day I read a post by someone here who described doing the very thing that frustrated me, yet he seemed to think it was just part of the business of making a print. Since I have learned to do split grade printing I get my base exposure and contrast with two test strips. No muss, no fuss.
