Default Gradients: traps for the unwary?

I'm currently working on a full colour newsletter with lots of ads to be set from supplied business cards. The usual stuff.

For some reason, this issue has a heap of gradients on the cards, and I'm wondering if there's anything I need to worry about when doing the gradients, in case they cause problems when they get to the printer.

I'm doing the gradients in InDesign and FreeHand, and most of them are logarithmic rather than linear. All go from 100% of a CMYK colour to white.

Will these cause the printer to tear out his hair and tell my client never to give me any work again?

If so, what should I do that's different?
