For once, Andrew, I couldn't agree more! Especially when you said:

"Hence, just because you have a multi-dimensional FrameMaker+GEEIMCOOLML and
10 megawatt font injector, does not mean you are an accomplished writer....
Accomplished writers have stacks and stacks of quality documentation on the
bookshelf behind them. Accomplished writers can look at complex things and
quickly figure them out. Accomplished writers can produce quality documents
less than ideal environments.

In other words, accomplished writers know how to use the most powerful
documentation system in the universe: their brains."

In a similar vein, I remember seeing an exhibit that Kodak did several years
ago, in which they gave some accomplished photographers a throw-away camera
with a 3-cent plastic lens and told them to take the best pictures they
could. The results were impressive. The point was that it's the creator, not
the tool, that makes good pictures.
