Northlight report a patent (not necessarily for SLR's) that sandwiches RGB layers between IR and UV layers, the sugestion is that it could "enhance colour fidelity, especially for skin tones"

Could someone explain how including colours we can't see might enhance the colours we can see?

Many thanks

People have used UV photography for portraits, to show skin damage caused by the sun:

So the uses could be medical, or could be photographic, as you can get some impressive looking portraits:

Quote from above: "In portrait photos, an infrared photo will result in milky skin portraits and eyes that are brooding and deep black"
