Yes, I think you are right but what is happening here is that colour values are being guessed based upon some measured information, some understanding of how the physical world is built and some understanding of how human vision and perception works.

In other words, direct measurement has been abandoned in favour of intelligently inferring colour from limited but sufficient (most of the time) partial information. This is exactly the same principles involved in the operation of traditional Bayer sensors!

If it works better than old Foveon X3, that's great and if it works better than Bayer, that's great too. But it's not Foveon anymore, it's something new and a decade of arguments, fights and upset has just been rendered obsolete!

We live in interesting times and it's great to have something new to talk about. Camera tech had got a bit iterative and stale of late...

Yes! Essentially, the new sensor is a 4.9MP classic Foveon sensor.  In terms of resolution, I reckon this would fare as good as 20MP APSC Bayer without the AA filter. Another way, this would beat the Merrill sensor slightly in BW charts but the 15MPx3 will be ahead at color resolution.
