You are already loosing 2 stops of light when you do not need to. Your better off bracketing the shot.

Using a polarizing filter indoors is useless, you just get dark out of focus images.

Just because you use a polarizer does not mean every shot is polarized. The position of the Sun in relation to the lens matters. You would not necessarily use it to even shoot a sunrise.  A polarizer is used to remove reflections and darken the sky/clouds and is not a 100% all the time fix.  It is not meant for people, it has no benefit. Using a tiffen 812 warming filter can do wonders.

A polarizer whether it be Circular or not is still a costly filter. You can buy a quality multi-coated clear protective filter and a slim profile polarizer and use it when needed. Nikon, Heliopan or B&W are all good filters.

You also can do lots in post editing.

Warm polarizers do exist.

1: with the Heliopan High Transmission polarizer the light loss is one stop. Not more like other polarizers.

2: There are many times that a polarizer would be used indoors. Glare control on glass, polished wood, tile are some reasons.

3: A multi-coated polarizer is always better then a non-multicoated one.

4: You can not do in post processing what a polarizer does in the camera. And why spend time in post when all you need do is twist the filter?
