I would say that the elements under discussion represent engineering solutions more than artistic style  and so the comparison is not very appropriate.  How could we decide that these particular elements were stylistic rather than purely functional ?  

Even if we were to consider the designer a pure artist, pure artists can and do work in different media requiring different techniques.  So why not a different form of life embodying different mechanisms for one or more of the elements under discussion ?

So I don't see how we could make a strong prediction from a design perspective that any of these elements would be largely constant - let alone all of them.
