I suppose it also has something to do with what the final goal is of the photographer.
Most that shoot color, don't make their own prints.
The only artistic flexibility they have is in the PS "processing."
One reason I make Ilfochromes is I don't want "realistic" color. I want that extra punch and contrast they deliver.
To me, and cheerfully my buyers, they don't look like what everyone else is doing in color.
I just wish more folks would take the time and money to learn how to do them, then maybe they wouldn't go under...
