This is the route I would have taken. In fact, I did once, with a  
book on LaTeX 2.09 ---I told the author we had two options: 1) we  
converted his document to LaTeX2e (compatibility mode of LaTeX caused  
many errors), with the time it meant or 2) we used his printed copy  
for copy-editing, he applied corrections and format his book to our  
specifications. He chose this last way, and all went well.
