Given that a RAW file is just the raw data from the image sensors, it doesn't make sense to speak about B&W then. Now of course it would be nice to have options in the conversion program to directly generate B&W images without going through color.
In general though, I think you can best do the conversion to B&W after shooting the image. At that point you can also see if you what mix of the color channels works best for your picture. (Use photoshop's channel mixer, selecting the "monochrome" option.)

Except for the movie mode, all of the modes below Auto on the mode dial can be performed by P, Tv, Av, manual. I see these additional modes basically as a marketing tool to provide faster access to a given set of defaults. Unfortunately these defaults are non defeatable as you have noted. Ah well the B&W mode you will have to get rid of the color in PS. Even the panorama mode can be simulated in P mode and RAW, you just won't have the camera to prompt you in the frame to frame overlaps. The Photostitch software can then be used with resulting TIFF files.
