So if they aren't archiving 1 bit tiffs, are they re-RIP'ing every job that they need to plate to get the 1 bits to feed the platesetter??

More like re-rendering. All the refining and trapping has already taken place, so it's just a matter of sending it to the platesetter again. If it's anything like our old setup, there is even a unique remake code on each plate so the pressman can go to the patesetter, type in that code and it will re-image the plate from its memory.I did try my own suggestion, and couldn't get it to work all the way - everything was good up until I tried to image the plate and I hit a wall, so I'm not sure if my advice was any good in the real world. In theory it's still good, though!
Had this issue when switching from a Creo Trendsetter to a Fuji Javelin. Had to change the process plan from creating 1 bit tiffs as "Output To"a "Virtual Proof" to "Output To" a "Tiff". Both are 1 bit tiff's but the Fuji required a true "Tiff" output.
