Bayer components are better represented as different color components (as
they really are), they may have different analog gains (so different noise),
they are better compressed when DC levels are calculated separately. And it
is possible to have "hdr" mode by using different gains for 2 greens (Gr,
Gb) in the Gr, R/ B, Gb
