And if that's the case, what's the value in differentiating between "doom metal"/"black metal"/"death metal" when nobody outside of elitists are going to know what the difference is and you have to explain the difference every time you use the terms?
No one outside elitists? Anyone who actually listens to it will be able to tell the 3 apart easily and will thus gain value from the categorization. Who doesn't gain value from those terms are those who won't listen to it in the first place because they have no interest in it. So they don't have to care either way. Those are super valuable labels, it has nothing to do with elitism.
