They could even tune their films to better mimic digital presets, if they wanted.
There is no single look for any film. I'm sure in the Fuji labs they have some reference recipes for developing and printing but that's not relevant for the world outside of the fuji labs. Look at a flickr group of any popular film. There is no consistent look because there are so many developers and recipes and differences in agitation and papers (or scanning and printing) out there.
I believe that 80% of the people who actually used Acros film will look at the Fuji Acros preset and they will notice that their Fuji Acros experience is (slightly) different.
The same applies to film presets. There are dozens of tools out there and every single tool does Tri-X, TMAX, Acros, etc. slightly different.
People who like Tri-X usually don't like Acros because it looks almost too digital (so they say).
