Excellent and relevant question. I believe the Kodak units use these types of inks. Indeed, most high-end printers do because of the archival properties vs. dye inks.

Some manufacturers (e.g. HP) now install electronics that effectively "expires" their cartridges after a certain date - meaning, the printer drivers do not allow you to print if the cartridge is more than "x" days past its manufacture.
I don't know if any incompatability with refill stations would help or hurt Kodak.
