Within the context of that frame, you can fit a variety of different approaches (i.e. Daniel Bryan is a different worker than Evan Bourne). But overall, the frame reminds the same match-to-match. You very rarely see a match that operates outside the framework, and when you do - the general reaction is "MOTYC" regardless of true quality It happened on Monday, for example. Cesaro vs Cena was a great match, but what really sets it a part is that it was different from the usual framework WWE matches followed.
That's basically what developmental is about. Teaching that framework. We can talk all day about how Sin Cara didn't work in WWE. But how come he was blowing minds weekly and being one of the top draws WORLDWIDE before he got to WWE? It's because he was allowed to do his thing, his way.
There's something to be said about homogenization, but there's also something to be said about learning how to work within the confines of structure. You can make valid arguments either way. To me, Sin Cara is the greatest example of the system failing. But then you also have Bryan Danielson, who might be the greatest example of the system working.
I completely agree with you about Mistico.
