It's probably a subjective issue, though. Like, "one man's trash is another man's treasure" could be, "one man's tan is another man's light brown".
And none of the premium makers actually call their tanned materials tanned.
Maple, Parisian Brown Misty, Bauxite, Hazel, Burnished Calf, Beechnut, Pine, Ash, Whiskey...the list goes on... all are tanned or close to what many people would consider tanned (or others light brown).
Imagine how hard it would be to get the manufacturers to use something as practical but "stiff" as NCS
. Would take some of the charm out of the ordering process I guess. Imagine "I'd like to order the Kent on TG73 last, Oak Bark Sole in S 6030-Y70R Calf and S 9000-N Suede". No fun. No fun at all!
