Lith is simply a another set of tools to the printer; another level of abstraction and expression. The same is true of any alternative process, silver printing, wet plate, toning, large format. a Hasselblad or crappy cameras. If the tool helps you express what you want to express, why not use it. If people think it is art, so much the better. If not, that's ok too.
