Mac,
  You misunderstood and I probably wasn't being clear.  All devices are ultimately calculated in the same zone. For example, at a concert with no comm, and one active zone for coordination which has IEM's and wireless mics, gtr packs etc...  If I have trouble finding frequencies for my IEM's I will create another zone and coordinate my IEM's there.  I will move the IEM's back into the active zone (with all the other devices) for the show and recalculate the microphone/all other assignments leaving the IEM's alone. This gives IAS some space to calculate the devices I would like to keep the most robust, the IEM's.   

 I prefer this method to deleting devices, calculating what's there, adding deleted devices back because it saves time labeling the devices again.  Hope this makes sense.             

If you don't do what Ike suggests this will not result in a good coordination. The devices you coord in a different zone are not coordinated with the original zone, only checked for direct hits, not IM products. When you move them to the original zone you are accepting all those IMs. By locking them and doing a re-calc you will be checking them for IMs against your imported freqs.

I use this method when it is early enough to do a racalc of the other freqs.  Generally I do all my TX freqs first using tripples and sometimes increasing the spacing to 400kHz.  I try to put them in their own TV bands and keep the mics and BTR RX away from them.  Worst case I put the momentary BTR RX in their own zone and carefully watch them (or war game) to avoid intermod freqs which might get picked up by the BTRS.  Since they are momentary I assume they will not make any IM themselves even if clustered.  I try to keep a few channels open for future TX adds.

Which brings another tip to mind: If you select "Complete Master, Normal, FCC Report" in the "Print" menu and then do a print preview, you will get a list of all of your frequencies, in order from lowest to highest, with separation listed. This is very handy when you are reverse band planning by allocating each type-make-whatever into its own chunk of spectrum.
Screenshot below, of an off site coordination I did for a show in Barbados.
