Probably Yes.

Is it worth the effort?
Definitely Not. Not under current conditions, though this may improve in the  

The best way to use Mathematica to prepare publication-quality graphics is
to use it for what it does best, then copy the results to a drawing 

program and add the bells and whistles such as text labels with subscripts.

Unless one does large numbers of similar graphics whose differences can be  
described mathematically and therefore programmed in Mathematica, this is also  
the fastest way to get things done. The disadvantage is that the results are  
not necessarily as platform-independent as a Mathematica notebook.
