 Scribus can import output from R's svg driver (with at least some degree of success).

 I just imported a simple plot to Scribus, specified some spot colours, and saved as EPS - the colours were specified as /Separation colours as described in my earlier message.

 I did try inkscape for this, but forgot about scribus. Inkscape doesnt seem to have such colour management.
