What is Clip Art really, but component graphics to compose with...thus,
patterns and gradients are clipart as well. Take a look at clip art
websites or clip art cd collections and they show many different
components such as lines, markers/arrows, patterns, etc. Gradients are
something new to the digital world, or rather new in their newfound
expressivity through computation.
The category reusable part or whatever is somewhat redudant, as all
clipart is reuasable components. I say let em stay as is...
