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 :(
