  Are you looking for a racing boat?

The boats you seem to like could be of little interest to someone who favored a high degree of maneuverability for playing rather than going forward at a certain rate of speed, for example playing in surf and tidal races. As others have mentioned, there were native paddlers using both plumb and raked bow boats as the purpose dictated - a long time before well funded yuppies (including me) decided to start paddling kayaks for fun.

Whether a bow type seems to be a trend is really just a matter of what you have been paying attention to - various types have been out there for a long time.

But you seem to be asking for input about boats towards a new one with more racing use - or are you?
