Does that include adapting map ideas/layouts from other games, such as Strife, Dark Forces, Quak [sic], or Halo?

"Good artists borrow, great artists steal." Lost of people said that about Bungie themselves. On the other hand, it seems fair to hold out "great" for his next creation, at which point he can steal from himself.

Also, maybe "art" is tainted now. In which case, I propose the theory that great game creators steal too.
