Why not use color filters WITH color sensors?

As you say: tweaking around too much in BW-conversion in PP (e. g. simulating a red filter) will increase noise, no doubt.

So why not take the pic with a real red filter attached despite the sensor being a color sensor? What you get is merely a red photograph. You may covert that into BW without much alteration of color-values, thus ending up with lesser noise.
I personally never tried that but I seems logical to me.
