The problem is that without the color channels you can really not work with the file, even if your final result is going to be B&W. Programs like Silver FX Pro need the color information in order to create the stunning B&W conversions it does.

I am not claiming the idea is good or bad, but I am surprised that nobody tells about traditional filter. What you are speaking about is not absolutely new: for B&W film shooting you would choose some physical color filter in order to achieve some special effect. Most digital conversion rest on mixing the channels in given proportions, which is a kind of equivalent of applying some color filter.
