My bets are that the different colors of light won't be bent the same amount. This then means that you're going to have to make a negative gravational source to correct for the color error. The experiments have shown an effect but now the engineers need to get into the act and make the actual lens. If the lens is colorfree then it may make an interesting lens out in space.
