I do agree with changing clouds to noise and noise to random, blender is 
the only app i have used that useas clouds and noise differently. but i 
certainly do NOT agree with merging textures, each have their purposes 
and ways of handling them, to me the more the merrier as with texturing 
you need as much fine control as possible and putting all textures into 
a blob is an all your eggs in one basket affair
