The Dura-Brite pigmented inks of the Epson C-84 have a lot of actinic
filtration (quite a bit more than the 2200) so one could in theory
make good negatives for alternative processes using either colorized
negatives or negatives made with just the black inks. I would
recommend trying the black pigmented inks first because they will
give you a visual reference to density and contrast.

I can not comment further on making colorized negatives with this
printer because I am currently beta testing the material in Mark
Nelson's soon (hopefully) to be released tome on making Precision
Digital Negatives.

To this point I would comment that the results I have seen from
Mark's method using the Epson 2200, in both alternative and silver
printing, are nothing short of amazing. The C-84 also gives good
results, but my results so far have resulted in a slightly grainer
image than with the 2200.

My advice is get your order in early to Mark. This could become the
new bible for making digital negatives, whether for silver printing
or alternative work.
