Foveon already uses Microlenses

with today's wafer cutting technology, it is impossible to produce a concave sensor. What it is possible, and Leica for instance does it, is to design and produce microlenses to be placed above each light receptor of the sensor, to "straighten" the light path at the edges of the sensor itself and allow light to reach the corners of the sensor. This microlenses can create problems, as they do with the Leica M series, when used coupled with interchangeable lenses; but it should create perfect results in a fixed-lens camera as the DPW Merrill would be.

Foveon has been using Microlenses since the SD-10.   Straighter light is very important to the sensor so that is absolutely something they include.
