The thing about Roddenberry's 'No conflict' edict is that it barred the writers from laziness. Interpersonal conflict can be great, but only if it's original, character driven interpersonal conflict. The 'Roddenberry box' took away a crutch and forced the writers to be creative.
If by "creative" you mean "having less ways to be lazy," then I suppose you are right. Still doesn't stop lazy writers from being lazy, as Roddenberry TNG showed - we just got more of the same junk. Inter-crew conflict would have at least added some variety.
