I don't know the full answer to that question myself, but part of the answer would certainly be: The work remains to be done. A lot of films need to be looked at and assessed. The list at the 10k bullets website, although long and good, is not comprehensive; there are many more relevant films out there. Some are missing and might yet be recovered. It's pretty virgin territory (pun sort of intended).
One way to get a handle on the noirness or otherwise of these titles is to read all their IMDB reviews, both "user" and "critic."
I haven't seen Eddie Muller's book on this subject yet.
