I actually don't see anything preventing Sigma from making a "Quatro" conversion on the Merrill sensors. You could just pixel bin the green and red layers and do a conversion.

It would be very interesting to see the difference.

What you mention is an interesting thought indeed, but it could very well be that it's just harder to have a higher density in the lower layers of red/green manufacturing wise creating more problems than having them bigger in the first place.   Think also all the "extra wiring/circuitry" that the Merrill still has in those layers than now is taken away and that should reduce interference, heat, and other things.
