There are not many artists out there ... while I agree on many aspects of your writing, that is something I would love to challenge. Most code written out there is written to just work. But by your definition everything is art. That takes away a lot from the real beautiful code written which is expressive, concise, runtime efficient and still understandable.
How much time did an artist spend sharpening his/her skills before he would himself call himself an artist - when would you call someone a genuine artist?
