RE: Custom color-separations in Photoshop?

CS3 has this advanced B&W filer method tthat allows application of any color filters to a B&W image. While I do not understand the math, or principles, I use it occasionally to creat a spot color (say orange) negative. I wonder if in principle it could be used to create orange/green purple negatives for example.
