In addition, color print materials have much lower maximum densities than transparencies (it would be wasted because of front surface reflections of prints).

There WERE Kodak products in the past designed to make display transparencies from color negatives.

Agfa still offers two display films aimed at RA-4 processing.
One even got maxD>3.
