There is another issue at stake here. Those of us who design and/or
document inhouse computer systems have impressive, professional-looking
manuals/user guides/brochures -- which unscrupulous individuals could use
to have their own applications written.

The main difference between a developer and a programmer is that the
programmer is given a task, and writes code to accomplish that task --
while the developer first ascertains the need, then determines the
requirements, then assigns and/or performs the tasks, etc. If you hand a
good programmer a well-written user guide,
he can probably use it to create a system which would otherwise have taken
years to put together. That would prove really upsetting (to say the
least) to a company that worked very hard to create an inhouse system they
considered unique.
