That's an interesting question, in theory, but I'm not sure it would
matter.  I haven't made a test of the two methods, but from what I can
gather, either way the information is the same, in terms of the source
material.  Whether one creates a desaturated RGB file which has no color
in it, or one that is grayscale, assume both result in a neutral result
(the desaturated might tend to be color toned on some systems) I expect
the Epson driver would see either an monochromic images, whether the
file was encoded as RGB or grayscale.

But, I'm willing to be proved wrong.  Try it and let us know.
