Black and White with Epson ABW and Epson Print Layout

Do you convert a color image into B/W in ABW on Epson Print Layout ?

Normally, the times I have chosen to print in B/W is when I've done all the work in my raw editor. Vincent Versace does a lot of his workflow in Photoshop. In fact, he states that B/W processing should not be performed in a raw editor --which surprised me. His work is stellar, so I'm willing to entertain a different workflow model. His next point, which he illustrates brilliantly, is that any image must first be processed as a color image, as best it can, before the final stage of B/W conversion.

As much as I would like to grow up to be like Vincent, I'm not ready to drop into Photoshop (I'm primarily using CO1).

Thanks for any shared experience on Epson Print Layout and ABW.
