Even More Fascinating

Ideally, spectral response curves should be similar to human vision but that's not practical...

I get the sense that there's a lot to learn from such a seemingly simple statement.  Obviously, if it were possible to make the curves identical to human vision it would have been done long ago.

What is the biggest obstacle to making them similar? And are there other technologies or methods that would allow better curve matching? (I always hope the answer will be to shoot my exposures through some combo of RGB and CMY filters).

Overlap on sensors is needed, else they would not be able to reproduce spectral colors.

But, that is not really practical.
