I'm sorry, but to me that would make the light hit the sensor at a shallower angle and at least make it prone to vignette. It seems to me that what we want is for the sensor wells to point AT the lens, not away from it. If the sensor was concave, then the corners would be closer to equidistant from the lens element as the center.

Ummm. You might be right. I have been trying to figure out just how this lens/sensor combination would work from when I first heard that the patent existed. Either way, it would be an interesting approach to solving the short flange/large sensor issue and could just possibly (maybe) be what we are looking at here.
