[Mark Dobson] "I might be wrong but I think the DSLR filming market has probably peaked and is on the decline."
[Mark Dobson] "Having bought a C300 ( almost paid it off! ) there is nothing that would induce me to film with a DSLR again"

Certainly their are better alternatives like the C300 but they do provide a low cost point of entry and the lenses one buys know can be used later. There's also times when the small size and inconspicuous appearance can work. Once you start having to rig it out though, you can now consider getting alternatives which don't cost much more, once you include the cost of the rig.

[Mark Dobson] "So it could be that the product was already out of date by the time it was launched and development costs v/s sales of turning the Ap into a professional rather than prosumer product just didn't stack up."

Although at $99 it was cost competitive with other plugins. Maybe their development costs were higher or their business model needed higher revenue.

That said I don't think these grading plugins are really specific to DSLRs but that might have been part of Technicolor's user base/business model.

[Mark Dobson] "And the 'looks' packages for FCPX are mostly a total waste of money, easily replicated in FCPX"

They can be a good education tool for the novice if they take them apart. On the other hand so many are so over the top they might actually be learning bad aesthetics.
