I think you are right, and they are saying some very strange things. 
Whenever I come across drum operators (in the context of magazine repro), 
they go to great lengths (4 or 5 words) to explain that my puny 4,000ppi 
scans are no good even for a postage stamp headshot, and that they scan 
*everything* at 12,000ppi. Where have you tried? Metro should know what 
they are talking about.
