Why?  I can understand that if we're presenting an image as a pictorial
history of what happened, but if we're talking about photography as art,
what's it matter?

If I mount my Leica on a tripod and take a time exposure so that I blur out
people and only record the background, should I label that as an
illustration rather than a photograph?

I don't see what labeling buys us.  Except room for more confusion.  :)
