prep and repaint trim

I need to paint trim that has a couple of coats of latex on it from previous owners. I plan to use a high quality enamel. Does all the latex have to be removed, and what's the best way to remove it?

No. If it's in good shape, you can simply paint over with your oil enamel. However, to achieve the nicest, most uniform sheen from your enamel, if you lightly sand the old finish to remove any tiny imperfections, then apply a quality enamel undercoat, lightly sand it smooth, then paint, your results will be that much better. More labor, but a superior result. I'd choose the second option myself, but the choice is there.
