Alan Ross is a proponent of this as an extension of his "selective masking" (purely analog) techniques. Alan prints all the authorized reproductions from Ansel Adams's negatives. As such he needed to find ways of reducing the manual labour involved in each print, as well as maximizing consistency from print to print.
Making inkjet masks is a potentially powerful tool. It works like traditional silver masking, except you can go a step further and even print yellows and magentas on the mask to combine the effects of manual dodging/burning with multiple contrast grades.
Indeed going to inkjet scanning to make masks is what I would call a hybrid approach, so not really analog. But if you are interested in the technique, Alan's Selective Masking articles/kits include detailed instructions (with example) on how to do inkjet masks.
