I think I see your point, we very often tend to focus on images which
look cool instead of images which are good as clipart, as the purpose of
clipart is not to look good by itself, but to be an useful building
block for larger works.
But in the end, I see no harm in (ab)using OCAL like a completely free
deviantArt clone or such.
