So if engineers find typos, they shouldn't mention them? If they think a
sentence might be confusing, they shouldn't mention it? If they think this
section should come before that one, they shouldn't mention it?
I don't think so. I treat my docs as (at least somewhat) more collaborative.
Just as I would mention something about the program or hardware that I
thought could use improvement, I would also hope that the engineers could do
the same for me. Not that I'll necessarily follow their advice, but I
wouldn't discourage it based on their job title.
