Interesting point on the orange/green substitution... I'm not sure the Epson driver does that - ImagePrint (very expensive) definitely does... Epson doesn't tell us much of anything about what their driver is actually doing, and users of x900 printers I've talked to say that orange/green are among the least used inks, and yellow is the second most used on my 3880. I'll try and get some yellow usage numbers out of the x900 models at some point.

I just cranked out a pack of 25 double-sided cards on Entrada Natural 190 in less than an hour. I've been sampling a lot of Moab papers lately (a VERY nice full line - I'd say that Moab, Hahnemuhle and Canson are the only three paper makers who have really full lines, although Epson's own papers are now coming close), and my 3880 has been handling everything from Unryu (a Japanese Washi paper not far removed from tissue paper) up to Somerset Rag (nearly a cardboard thickness), and from velvet papers all the way to metallic, all with beautiful results.
