I think harmony has a way to make spot color curves. How does ColorFlow handle plate curves for spot colors.

In ColorFlow 1.0 and 1.1, specific spot colors can be assigned one of the process colorants' calibration curve in the Device condition properties dialog. As in Harmony, there is a special curve called "Default" that is assigned to a spot color if the spot is not explicitly declared in the device condition properties dialog. The "Default" curve is mapped to black, but this can be changed to any of the process curves.

In ColorFlow 1.2, not yet released, we have now the ability to set a custom spot curve for any spot separation. So, if you require a specific calibration correction for a separation like "Reflex Blue", you can define this colorant in the device condition properties dialog and adjust the cal. curve independently of any other curve.
