Can AUTHORIN be used to submit sequences to EMBL?

Having used AUTHORIN to submit sequences to GenBank, I am disappointed that
no similar program is available for EMBL. The convenience of data entry, 
as well as the consistency of data presentation make this a very useful

Recognizing that EMBL can't make direct use of AUTHORIN's transaction-format
files, it seems to me that submission of AUTHORIN-generated EMBL entries should 
still be preferable to having to fill out the electronic data submission
form, which is more prone to errors than use of AUTHORIN.

Would anyone from EMBL care to make a policy statement regarding submission
of AUTHORIN-generated EMBL entries?
