Instead of trying to make every camera look identical, I prefer to let each play to its strengths. It's not just the Sigma that struggles with the adjustments above, the blue playing cards went all indigo in the Hasselblad file...

The Phase One Trichromatic sensor is supposed to be as colour accurate as is possible.

Mostly this page is marketing puff but as I understand it, they developed optimised CFA filters to provide results that are a best match to the eye's colour response.  Mainstream CFA are colour compromised slightly in the search for better high ISO performance.

Here's a deeper discussion with examples

It's interesting largely because it tells us that some of the deficiencies of Bayer sensors can be addressed - it's a design decision. Mainstream sensors are not as good at colour as the technology's potential - presumably because the manufacturer thinks very few people care and the trade off is worth it.
