I believe the point being made here is that what we do ain't art; it's craft. Both require "creativity" of various sorts, but they have different goals.

(Have we had this debate before, or have I been reading online discussions for so long that I feel deja vu automatically?)

<What we're practising is not creativity but
problem-solving.>

Beautiful words, as always. Can't problem-solving be creative? In my
opinion, very much so.
