Very true, I remember seeing (on-line) someone's silver-black duotone
double layer carbons and they were looking gorgeous! But unfortunately
I don't have the setup (and willing of the extra fuss) for perfecly
aligning several layers on top of each other...

You don't need to work with color separations, printing two layers of black/medium black on top of each other works great and the result can be more powerful than a single layer carbon print.
