(1) If you are on Windows, your CMYK TIFF images will come out of 
FrameMaker as RGB anyway. (By the way, your publishers CAN use RGB;
sounds like they are too lazy to! But then again, they are writing
the checks to you!)

(2) Illustrator is a vector artwork program that provides some 
limited image placement and output services. Photoshop is an image 
edit program and provides full services in terms of sizing, 
resolution, and exact output format.
