So I'll go out on a limb and say:

  output from tests (.out) files have "no degree of creativity" since
they are computer generated from other files.

  property files (.properties) have "no degree of creativity"  since
they are just lists of values

  SQL test scripts (.sql etc) have "no degree of creativity" since they
have no stand-alone purpose and can be considered as a non-creative
representation of a test plan. Sound good :-)
