Yes, and I could also more gainfully spend my time with more focused writing projects or by printing. But it never does much harm, other than waste a bit of time, to explain our reasoning in a courteous manner way with people whose opinion and work we respect.

And bear in mind also that the information in this discussion is presented in answer to questions by others, not to satisfy you or me. We both already know what we want to do and have the knowledge and experience to do it, at least in terms of printing with metal salts. That we should come to different conclusions about minor aspects of the issue does not surprise me, and might prove instructive to others in showing that there are many ways of reaching the same destination.
