Are they worth the cash? Are there any other shoes with the wide toe box?

Yes, they are (IMHO) worth the cash. The Northwaves and the Looks I tried on also seemed to have a wide toe box.

I tried Carnac, but was equally happy with a wide toebox Northwave for 1/2 the price. The other shoe I tried and was impressed with its roominess are the new Pearl Izumis.

I think so. I've ridden Carnac Legends for the last 6 years. I've got 2 pairs (newer and older). Time shoes are not bad for toe box roominess and I've seen sales on the high end ones at half price recently in Nashbar catalogues.

My opinion on shoes (and shorts) is that you should not try to save money on second best. They last a very long time and you'll be spending 1000's of hours in them. In the end, it'll come down to pennies an hour. That's not worth sacrificing comfort over.

Nothing worse than ill fitting shoes. I still shutter remembering the 3 months I suffered with that pair of Sidi Genius II's I got on sale for half price on a close-out. Ended up giving them away.
