you aren't missing anything. Using the printing system as a RIP is a 
workaround. You should be able to get some of the options from a printer 
driver (if you don't have a postscript printer, add one from your printer 
setup dialog). In the printer settings, you will be able to define some, if 
not all the settings you need.

There's a good reason RIPs are expensive, so don't expect any miracles :(
