I think NPC, NPS, NPL are all pretty fine grained and possibly finer grained than 160 VC and NC or at least similar. Reala is certainly finer grained and my initial usage of kodak's 100uc is finer and of course older discontinued films were finer still.

I suspect that there is and has been for some time the technology to make finer grained colour films. There may not have been the efficiencies within the manufacturing process to justify it until now.
