I have adopted that trend for only my porcelain Cone 6 or higher where I know the body has vitrified, I wet polish the outside of ware with silicon carbide papers because I love the smooth eggshell finish of a polished piece.
Yes it can still get grubby after a very long time but I use a green scrubby pad with a fine pumice powder cleansing liquid (I don't know US proprietry brands) and it cleans them up nicely.
I glaze inside and out for earthenware and stoneware bodies..

I don't think it is a trend. Sometimes a piece needs a glaze, sometimes it doesn't.

The contrast of unglazed clay, with glazed clay is pleasing visually, but rewards greater in tactile perspective.
The beige is blinding!!!!!!
