Yes, but several knowledgeable folks have suggested that certain ink
"receivers" will essentially encapsulate the dyes, protecting and
prolonging them.  This quality benefits dye inks in general.  Did you
know for example that Ilford Archiva dye inks are only "archival" with
this class of papers?  I expect oem 1160 and 1200 dyes will both prove
to be prolonged with PGPP.  I also wouldn't be surprised if 1160 and
1200 oem ink turns out to be less of an "orange fader" than 1270 dye,
but to my knowledge these suppositions haven't been tested yet.

I have to disagree here on the basis that a professional photographer
has to send out a professional looking product, even if it will not
repro better.  Epson Photo Paper just doesn't make the grade, plus it
has an easily abraded surface.  In addition PGPP is capable of better
photographic result, even if only measurably small.  The subjective
difference however is large.
