The game doesn't encourage the player to think of her- or himself as participating in a simulation of writing, but it does fuse game elements with authoring elements. This leads me to think that we should stick with "authoring games" as a broad category clustering "works that provide the means to create but with the introduction of game-like obstacles," and then "authoring sim games" as a sub-category clustering "works that provide the means to create, with the inclusion of game-like obstacles, specifically obstacles which simulate those encountered in the process of creating." ?

Consider <a rel="nofollow" href="http://mustard.tapor.uvic.ca/cocoon/ach_abstracts/xq/xhtml.xq?id=175"> this article by Noah and David Durand</a> which also uses the term "authoring games." Does "Cardplay" meet our criteria? The final text is not portable. Hmm, Jeremy might have some insights here. So do we need a discrete end product? I keep coming back to Authoring-Sim-Game, Authorware-Sim-Game, or Authoring Games. More thoughts?

Someone could say that <i>Sim City</i> simulates the "creation" of a city, even though that city is not "content" in the sense that we are using it in this thread. I think you were right earlier when you said that the important part is that these programs <em>both</em> allow a user to create things, <em>and</em> simulate the hardships involved in that kind of creation. Unfortunately that makes only for unweildy acronyms like CPCSGs [Content-Producing Creation-Simulating Games]?
