Plexiglass / Floated Framing Advice

Hello!

After a recent trip to the framer, they presented multiple framing options for floating a piece I own. Their best "conservation/archival" recommendation was to have the front actually touching the plexiglass, in order to keep the piece "flat". They claim it's inert properties and lack of temperature change will make it "safe" and not ruin the art over time. I've been warned that screen prints touching _glass_ can be dangerous, and the art can stick to the glass if temperature change happens.

Is their method safe? Do I have anything to worry about?

Thank you!
