Hi Richard, thought i'd join in your discussion with an related example. I also feel using this method results in a not that big number of possible solutions and as you stated you could end up with an already made solution.
So it's true, not the most "creative" method but also when used properly and unforced, the solutions created by compounding can result in good visuals.
