I think this quandry is challlenged in part by the idea of "mix and match"
bulb sets.  Folks will buy one for its blue spectrum, another for its
"daylight" look, and a third for its triphosphor balance.  When the time comes
to replace the bulbs, they replace one or two of these with something else
looking for a better mix.
