I've been toying with this idea for a while. If I were to take some E-6 film and skip the first developer and reversal bath, would I end up with an E-6 negative? Would the negatives not have the orange cast that C-41 films do? Would the effective speed of the film be faster? The reason I thought it might be faster is based on what I've read here about reversal processing B&W film - according to the article I read reverse processing film cuts the speed about in half.
Before I get a bunch of responses about why would I do this, just use C-41 film or cross-processing realize this is really just a thought experiment / idle speculation.
