Isn't the repeated "Camera sensors are color-blind—they see only brightness" statement a bit misleading?

I don't claim deep knowledge on the Bayer sensor technology, but it seems that registering brightness onto red, green, and blue sensors, and interpolating the values (with some consideration of edge effects) is, in effect, "seeing" color — and with basic similarities to the way that photoreceptors in the eye work. No?
