RAW does not fall back to RGB, it simply states the luminance for each colour it uses in the bayer filter.
So if they use CMYW then it would state the luminance of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and White, it does not convert this information inside the camera/file to RGB.

Demosaicing is after al not done with the RAW file
I completely agree with you on this. I'm not trying to split hairs. I'm just saying that there is a color space for every raw file; for Pentax PEF (or DNG), it's RGB, and there's no practical application for which it's helpful to think of it not having a color space. Otherwise, it's a "this one goes to 11" conversation.
