Computer programs always work in metaphors, and those unfamiliar with the metaphor are not going to benefit from it. Mechanical engineers will tell you that those who haven't hand-drafted in school have much less facility with CAD packages, which use many drafting metaphors.

Much of Photoshop is built on darkroom and other physical photographic metaphors, and the same type of connections apply.
The metaphor only works when an expected outcome is defined. I.e. "what's considered in good taste" as Benji Boy said.

Without someone defining what's in good taste it doesn't matter.
