Why is sanding, or any self-treatment to raw denim, specifically a taboo?

Yah all the denimheads might be doubting how "authentic" the fades are, but if you think about it, how did some of the most coveted washes in Dior (just for example) like Dust and Jakes come to be?

Nothing wrong with "touching up" your jeans to make it better looking (which in itself is subjective, but those with born aesthetics do it better regardless what tools you give them - otherwise who'd have thought of coating denim in the first place?). Problem is that most people fuck up and then it looks like jizz.
