No - actually, AccuRaw Monochrome is primarily focussed on conventional unmodified cameras as produced by Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus, Fuji, etc that use Bayer or X-Trans color sensors. Using a conventional raw developer to produce a monochrome image using these cameras, you would first demosaic the raw image as you would a color image, then desaturate it. AccuRaw Monochrome has a specially developed monochrome demosaicing algorithm that is optimized for going directly to a monochrome image.
