Just because something is steam driven does not make it Steampunk. Creating a steam-powered airship is not the same as making a working Steampunk airship - one is an engineering puzzle, the other is a fantasy (using the term in nothing but a positive manner).

There is no way to make a Steampunk airship in real life, because we do not live in a world which allows lighter-than-air privateers to haunt the trade routes, or to explore the ruins of the Antarctic civilizations, or be part of Her Majesty's Aerial Defence Forces. Sorry, but Steampunk is much more than what a thing is, it is mostly what we do with that thing.
You do have a point...
