You could do a test comparing DV into Color and let it render to ProRes versus Compressor conversion before grade, but my gut feeling is that Color does a great job of rendering the DV footage out as either ProRes or uncompressed. It is quicker to do it in Color if you are happy with the quality.

In SD I don't bother with ProRes as uncompressed SD is easy to manage. The only catch is that Color leaves the field order as lower in the uncompressed or ProRes file which is a nuisance in PAL, but easily corrected with a flip field filter on all shots.
