While certainly technical writing work can get done no matter where the
writers report in the org chart, I do think there is an advantage to
*not* reporting to engineering: most people here have probably been in
a situation where a company wanted to ship *right now* even if the docs
had not been revised to match bug fixes, late technical changes, etc.
If the writers report to engineering, they're going to be under
pressure from their bosses and not have much leeway to resist. If
they're in a separate pubs department, or at least QA, they will at
least have the support of their upper management for this stand.
