But the Foveon data is not very useful information, it relates to a colour space which is not close to human vision. It detects colours that for us don't exist and fails to catch ones that do exist. Saying that the problem is the RGB colour model is frankly ridiculous, it is that model which is designed to approximate human colour vision. The Foveon colour model might be better for aliens, but not for human beings.

More or less right.

Still Sigma can often make useful color images from the strange data.
