Topic: Tagging each image for Zip or JPEG?

Reality check:

What if a designer (or prepress shop) wants to have complete control over
which images use Zip compression vs. JPEG compression. Is it theoretically
possible that say a Quark XTension or Adobe Plug-in could "tag" individual
images so that when it passes through Distiller the requested compression
scheme is used?

As it is now, you either take your chances with Automatic (which still ruins
screen snapshots with JPEG) or switch to Manual with ALL Zip or ALL JPEG.
The only other way I know of to control compression on a per image basis is
to use Manual ZIP in Distiller and then PitStop to compress each image, but
that's quite cumbersome if you're involved in frequent revision cycles.

Does anything like this exist? Does anyone want it? Could it be developed?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
