Not exactly gone...

yeah, exactly, it sounds a bit like the original 3 colors per pixel advantage/approach is gone.

Well, not totally gone... since there is some overlap between layers it could be the separate blue layers can help hint how the single red/green layer should be broken out. But note quite as "pure" an approach to be sure.

Although one thing to keep in mind is the sensor is still not filter out out any data, all light still goes into the sensor and gets measured...

How this affects real world pics is up to be seen. It will be interesting to compare DP2M pics VS DP2 Quattro.

That will be really, really interesting and should keep some people occupied for a while! Sort of larger resolution with more interpolation, but less noise... it will probably depend somewhat on what you are shooting and in what light levels.
