No one else has mentioned this, but the publisher is trying to make
money, not make your life easier.  Sometimes the right thing to do is
say "Hey - you guys are the experts at this, you convert my RGB pdfs
to the correct format".  It's worthwhile to push back a bit to
publishers and get them to do their job.
