"the aesthetic quality of out of focus elements from a lens". I can create examples from a real camera to demonstrate the difference if that helps in the future.

However, I misread the original post where they were just wanting to be able to do blur period, which has plenty of value on it's own. Not trying to be overly pedantic, it's just the difference between the two matters a bit.
