for an explicit example of how the Intangible Sludge has become standardized, look no further than a season 1 dexter screencap & a dexter: new blood screencap (pls do not @ me with "but he's not in miami anymore")

Why has this look become so standardized? It hurts my eyes and brain.

digital cameras with insane dynamic range + LED light + fix it in post. These things arent inherently bad but its made a lot of people, especially younger DPs sloppy. Haze the room out, shoot it in LOG, end up liking the LOG look, forget to add the colors back in. Sludge

The ability to more easily color grade shots has to have a major role too. That said, it seems like a weird counter that completely cancels out the benefits for HDR beyond just less banding.
