Why is it that technical writers separate themselves from technical people?
While this does tend to be true in many environments, there are plenty of
technical writers that are technical people. Maybe that's where the problems
arise...the need to draw this line between "us and them."

EXACTLY why we don't need to try to waste time debating such issues. In
fact, I've never had to go to an engineer to debate his choice of timer
signals or register definitions. Technical folks often see the world as just
one engineering challenge after another, and easily solved with an
engineering/technical solution.
