I respect your desire for color information to differentiate areas of the same luminosity when going to B&W.
I can, however, from a physics point of view question your moral right to do so; to differentiate areas of equal energy as if they were not. (!Joke!)

My reason for wanting to record without a Bayer filter is to avoid any and all unnecessary loss of light on its way to the sensor.
Ideally I would like the option to make this a color image by recording two variables:

1. Record a high resolution image based on unfiltered electromagnetic energy reaching each pixel of the sensor.
2. Record the exact wavelength seen by each pixel.

If I could I would now like to merge the accurately recorded luminosity with the true colors to produce a true color image. However, since we do not yet know how to do this quickly and inexpensively I am willing to start by making a physically accurate B&W image, pleasing or not.

I apologize if the result differs from a more artistic B&W rendering of the same scene, but I maintain that it can be of interest for other reasons.
