Only if you are afraid to believe your own eyes. See:

How do you suppose digital interpolation actually helps optical resolution? There is nothing fanatical about rejecting such an obviously false notion.

I happen to be a big fan of the Foveon concept and its a pity we
have yet to see a higher pixel count Foveon in a new dslr recently.

The Kodak does not interpolate luminance information.

?

Luminance requires R+G+B info, exactly the same as chrominance.

the
interpolation of chrominance information is pretty sophisiticated.
The Foveon's stacked RG&B sensors introduce their own distortions.
Fact of the matter is the Foveon sensor is a clever but
underdeveloped idea that, in the SD9, just about cuts it in the
company of entry-level dslrs, but thats it.
