I'm thinking that since a silver print is not cleared until the fixer removes the silver, then there may be problems with staining associated with the uncleared silver in the paper.

Sounds like a fun experiment.

yes, toned before fixing. The clearing baths are not the issue. OTOH is simply a matter of fixing a print and seeing if it works as well as before fixing.

I have never had any stain problems with kallitypes, I have difficulty making a good print, but that is another matter...:P
