You can always just use the pre-existing Pro/e Visualization file and perform a Save-As to STEP file using Creo View professional. This costs you about 900$ a license I think. A LOT cheaper than adding a second worker, second Pro/e license and having to maintain them. Plus if you have multiple types of CAD data you wouldn't need another STEP publisher for that either.
That being said, I look forward to the day when a Creo publishing job spits out the normal visualization file AND additional formats at the same time without having to reload the job. Maybe that does work in 10.1? I haven't seen it yet. I certainly like how they are making these additional files available via a RMB click too.
