If one remains in Digital Photo Professional one can do all the B&W  
processing of curves, levels, tones (highlight, midtone, and shadow,  
software color filter effects, et al without ever taking a look at  
the color data - one can determine file size, resolution, choose bit  
depth, etc. then save or export the manipulations as tif, ps, jpg,  
whatever - without altering the RAW file. Hope this helps.
