Would there be any problem in transporting wet prints in a zip-top plastic bag?

Now the hint: A very experienced photographer and printer (Jim Dow) suggested clamping two squeegeed prints together, back to back, and hanging the pair to let them dry. He uses a clamp at each corner and says that they dry nice and flat. This is the way he did all of Walker Evan's images for a show at MOMA back in the 70's. The clamp marks are supposedly the only way that museums and galleries can now tell his printing from that of Walker himself, for whom Jim served as darkroom man for some years before the show.
I've tried hanging prints back to back like that, and while it works pretty well I find it more 'helps' than produces a nicely flat print.
In the end I flatten the dry print between two pieces of rag board in one of those cloth print dryers. Works like a charm to get things flat.

Regarding the ZipLoc bag, I don't see why it wouldn't work, unless it gets punctured somehow. Maybe double bag?
