I think the igl- and ikp- forms can do that just as well as ic?i-
Here is an example from my text corpus:
chaN kiN iglaksapi = They cut the wood for themselves
(iglaksa = refl. from kaksa)

forms. Such as:
k'u is also used with ic?i in both reflexive and reflexive benefactive:
Phezhi etaN' ii'c?ikcupi na owiN'shthuNpi.
They took some grass for themselves and spread it to sleep on
Unki'yepi etaN'haN xeya'b ii'c?ikcu.
She has taken herself away from us.
But perhaps I got lost a bit in your discussion of benefactive person
markers in place of plain patients.
