I was wondering about moire as well. It seems like a sketchy idea to just drop the low pass filter unless you're doing something non-bayer like the Fuji X-Trans sensor, or Foveon or something.

But having a low-pass filter isn't restricted to the Bayer pattern, it's part of digital sampling theory.  It's interesting to me that you can drop the AA filter in a camera and it usually doesn't harm the photo, but try that with digital audio, and yuck!
