Firstly, I have used exactly the same equipment and have never experienced banding as a consequence of this approach which is, in fact, my normal mode of operation - adjust the print size and let the ppi fall where it may as long as it isn't higher than 720ppi. Secondly, this should not result in banding, given the processes involved. A non-integer ppi applies equally to the vertical as the horizontal axis, so any artefact of the rendering process should apply equally in either direction (excluding bugs). Banding is an error that predominates in one direction over another, so it should not be a consequence of rendering from a non-integer resolution image. Certainly you have more dots in the horizontal axis with most Epson printers, but that is the same no matter what resolution the image is, fractional or integer.
