Yes nobody,

But you should definitely try it, you will get crazy sharp image from that sensor after removing that filter with the powered brush tool!!

Problem with removing bayer filter is that you also remove the micro lenses. Each pixel has a microlens, which is on top of the bayer filter.
Read somewhere that without these micro lenses, the sensor gets way less light...
But you gain some light by removing the bayer filter, so it accepts all available light...
Not sure how this works outing real life though  :-\

And in some cases, "all available light" includes infrared and/or ultra-violet light...

I realize its a late reply, but there is a hot mirror before the bayer sensor that rejects IR and UV. You can certainly remove it and replace with a piece of quartz (otherwise it changes your focal distances), and then use Uv/IR/VIS filters in front of your lens. I have found that changing the filters in front of lenses when you change lenses to be less than desirable when in the field but sometimes you work with your budget and goals.
