Why is there so much "art" in color science?

Just some questions on the technology and theory behind this stuff.

People talk all about how so-and-so's color beats the other's color, but why does any of that matter when a LUT could convert one camera's image to another?
Barring bit-depth issues (although maybe I shouldn't), I assume that if we shot every camera against a chip chart, it would be trivial to design LUTs to make any footage look precisely like any other camera's footage of the same subject, color-wise.
