Just a couple of points.

You write: "[...] by an electronic musician I mean a person who needs 
fancy effects and whose work relies more on manipulating sound rather 
than actually playing notes and just getting them together. A modern 
electronic composer heavily relies on chains of effects which allow him 
to work with the sound in a flexible and imaginative way."

I don't share that point of view. Although I understand that the concept 
of 'electronic musician' is very ambiguous. Any 'musician' now-a-days 
has to deal with 'electronics' (computers)... In the same way the 
interpretation of the definition of 'electronic music' spans from 
dance-like music with an 'electronic' flavour to what some would call 
'electronic art music'.

In general I can see a point in being as extreme as considering only two 
applications, but I find the 'they have nice polished gui, so they are 
cool' approach a little simplistic. Nothing against polished guis :)
