They could equally well print with any other cast, or even (with enough effort) neutral. On my suggestion, one lab I used always went for warm, to the point of sepia.

Something that's worth knowing is that there are no neutral black (and hence grey) chromogenic dyes. These are something of a Holy Grail. Kodak apparently developed one once, but I don't think they've ever used it. Or maybe it didn't work as well as they'd hoped.
