I think flat and transparent is the way to go. Then adjust in software as you describe. What you can't adjust is directionality, and some other aspects. But a good wideband, flat low distortion microphone you color to please for each project would seem the best way to go. Just not how it has been done.

I have developed calibration curves for a few of my mics based off a calibrated measurement microphone. They do sound much closer that way. Most sound cleaner and more real to life. Then you can add ripples or bubbles in response as needed. Still they don't sound identical after this just that differences are much reduced.

Some things like tube or transformer sound I don't have a way to mimic though there are companies with plug ins that claim they can.
