Therefore, it is not always fiscally prudent for corporations to spend a gajillion dollars on hiring tech writers to sit around all day dreaming up rock-solid documentation processes and designs.

Ref Designs:

"Rock-solid" designs are better than poor designs. And, provided the end-user goals & tasks have been properly analyzed, excellent design does not take long.

Ref Processes:

I agree with your point that a lot of time can be spent "dreaming up" ideal processes. The answer may be to think in terms of deliverables - not so much the processes that develope them. Processes needed vary (sometimes radically) from organization to organization. Deliverables not nearly so much. Deliverables provide early project matrices.
